    Sarracenia Purpurea maintainence

    So, I have my Sarracenia Purpurea plant for about a year now indoors and missed a dormancy and still is continuing to grow and stuff and I have decided that I need to bring it outdoors and I've been noticing that the pot is getting a bit small with a ribosome division occurring. This made me thing that a mini bog is needed but, I want one that is not large but has a lot of space that also auto-refills or something. Do you guys have anything in mind that I can use?

    Also, I think I have been noticing some disease that is beginning to infest my plant. I see little brown spots on my plant when scraped off looks like a scab or something and it isn't dead cells because when I scrap it off, it reveals the plant's green healthy parts underneath the brown spot. Adding to this as well, I am beginning to see mold so can anyone tell me a safe medicine to repel fungus and insects from eating the plant?

    Sounds like scale insects. Look at the underside of the "scab" and you should see an insect. A systemic insecticide with Imidacloprid should take care of them.

    Do not use oils.

    so this is safe with carnivorous plants? just to be safe, can you recommend me to a anti-fungus and the kind of insect repellent that the plant absorbs into its leaves and then the insects eat it, they die.

    A bigger pot.

    with a ribosome division occurring.
    First off, I think you meant rizome. Ribosomes assist in the translation process that makes protein in cells. (Thank you 10th grade biology.)
    Second, a rhizome division doesn't just occur, it's something that you have to do. If you think your purp's rhizome is large enough, go ahead and do it, but wait until next spring.

    Sorry, I can't really help you with those brown spots. The mold should go away after you place the plant outside. If it doesn't, you can go ahead and treat it with something.

    If you have anymore questions, just shout.

    Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

    Oops, wrong link. I corrected it.

    A system insecticide gets absorbed by the plant so when the insect eats or sucks juices from the plant the insect gets a dose of insecticide.

    Bayer Advanced has several off the shelf products you can find at Home Depot and the like that contain Imidacloprid. There is a triple action product with a fungicide. If there is no fungus why bother with a fungicide?

    The fixed link mentions one of the Bayer Advanced products.

    can you tell me the name of an anti-fungus solution ahead of time just in case? i don't want it to be damaging to start treating it when I see it.

    @theyellowdart yea, i'm sorry, i knew it started with an r but forgot what it was called.

    so, if i were to replant into a minibog outside, then can you tell me the soil composition and secrets that make your minibogs thrive? i heard that people use lava rock and all sorts so i am not sure about anything right now.

    Just look on Bayer Advanced site under rose and flower care or shrubs and trees. Rose and flower would be more appropriate.

    Unless you have an idea of what fungus you're up against you might have to go through 3 or 4 fungicides to find what works. Maybe not even then.

    haha, it's cool, you don't have to apologize... thats an easily made mistake.

    The soil for a mini bog is pretty simple. A peat/perlite mix works well if it's drained and if it's un-drained pure peat should work fine.
