    Did the minor buy it in the end?

    Have a look at the Savage Garden - it should give you some ideas of what to buy.

    Have a look at hybrids as well. If you like S. minor, you'll love S.x excellens.

    I noticed that when I lost most of my Sarr collection last Fall due to fungus-of-the-rhizome; that the pitchers browned and died from the bottom up.

    The healthy pitcher end-of-life being that they die from the top to bottom.

    No, it still looks the same. I have the soil very wet, basically waterlogged.

    One thing that I would consider doing is to uproot the plant and examine the rhizome itself for pests or disease. Sarracenia are amazingly resilient to handling, particularly this time of year. Remove any dead or diseased tissue and perhaps treat it with a fungicide just in case and provide fresh new compost. . .

    This summer is the first time I'm going to STOP keeping my plants waterlogged...not even with 1 or 2 inches of water sitting in their trays. I grow them outside, but combine that with the hot Houston sun and no water aeration, I find a lot of my Sars die from root rot. I'm going to just topwater them daily and use the sphagnum as indicator for dryness.

    I used to actually have a small water pump in their trays to get the water circulating but I didn't see any major improvements.

    I think you just need to be patient. How's the flower doing?

    Hi Ahmad,
    Another Florida grower here. S. minor can be tricky. They seem to like dry-ish conditions compared to other Sarrs. Where in Florida are you? We have found growing our Sarrs in water trays to be an excellent way to promote rhizome rot, and any standing stagnant water is not good. You must have drainage! Unplug those holes and let the water flow!

    I live in the Tampa area. I'm going to buy some new watertrays in a few weeks. I just have to save up some money for them
