    altough i havent tried this
    You shouldn't be recommending something you haven't tried. It's good to remember that when something happens once, that not enough to be making broad generalizations for recommended growing.

    Want to prove your theory? Do some tests and experiment (if you want to risk your plants). There is nothing wrong with trying all sorts of growing conditions on your plants.

    But if you're gonna come in here and say "Do this...it happened to me once"...be prepared for a whuppin'. lol

    There are some pretty solidly proven growing conditions for Sarracenia and it's best to stick to those unless, like I said, you want to experiment. If so, keep good records of your conditions.

    Another good trick to growing Sarracenia is to water them with tap water mixed with salt. Then when the plant starts getting sick looking, flush the pot with pure water and continue to water from then on with distilled, rain, or R.O. water. The plants will look better than ever, that is if they're still alive from the abuse/neglect. Unfortunetly, I haven't tried this myself.

    Don't forget the CPs that get BBQed in controlled fires and then grow back better than ever. I haven't tried torching my backyard to test this in captivity though.

    You could probably stick your plants in the microwave and get the same effect.

    does anyone remember pon14? he was just a "really young grower" too...

    you live in a cave all your life and not go outside. your going to be pale pale pale! you put a sarr in crappy conditions, its going to be pale pale pale! now. walk out of your cave in the dead of summer on a sunny day and just lay out in the sun. with no sunscreen. for several hours. oh youll turn pretty colors alright...

    if its happened once. good. you fixed the problem and you saved the palnt from death. but dont do it again. unless like PAK said you want to experiment. you stress the plant out by depriving it of what it needs. you dont want people to starve you do you?

    I think every one have the right to experiment on diferent ways to reach the best of the plants.

    But I feel that to experiment on a plant taking it to the extreme of precarious conditions should be avoid and forbidden with no questions.

    That is just my opinion and nothing else.
