    All Sarracenias should make digestive juices by their own, but not a whole lot. It starts to make more when prey start to fall in, I think.

    I think this is a conditions thing. Sarracenia don't always flower each year; they have to be in good health and they need the change in seasons to tell them when to go. Mid-Winter is still way too early to see flowers in most places. Also, are you keeping it in enough water? A healthy plant shouldn't need water added to its pitchers - that's really an, "Oh God my plant is dying!" last-ditch kind of move. I believe you might be killing it with love.

    S. purpurea is the only one that relies on rain or someother source to fill it up.

    It would help if you posted pictures of the plant and also your geographical location. It's possible that it's too early for it to come out of dormancy. Just be patient with the plant. As for filling the pitchers with fluid - as Capensis states: generally this is not necessary unless you're dealing with purpurea. All the other remain relatively dry (if you peek inside them, the bugs in there should have the consistency of moist compost - not swimming in fluid - water or otherwise - you may just be diluting the digestive enzymes in there.

    Hi guys

    Thanks for the advice................Again like i said i never put this guys into dormancy because well i am not allowed to......So i guess i only can grow them for max 2-3 years before they start dying.There is a mulch of ants inside not much but well sufficient....I guess sarrs don't have as much fluid as neps do.

    BTW i just seperated one of its rhizome....It has 4 rhizomes lol...The one i seperated is the smallest having 3 pitchers and around 13-15cm but they are sooo skinny
