    Would it be a good idea to order a bare-root Sarracenia at this time of year?

    I would like to buy a Sarracenia Purpurea Venosa online, and I found one for sale for a good price. However, it's only offered bare-root.


    Would it be okay to buy a bare-root Sarracenia this time of year?

    dormancy period is usually the time when its a little rough to ship.....
    was it necessary to create a new thread on this?

    Well, I'm just worried that if they are uprooted, shipped, and then planted, they'll go into shock now that it's the growing season

    Sarrs recover fast, there's some that are slightly temperamental like rubricorpora which may not show it's full color potential if the roots are disturbed. It can take up to 2 yrs for it to settle back in but 99% of sarrs can really be transplanted mid-season in my experience, it'll just disturb growth for a bit.
    Right now is the best time to get them bare-root since it's just the start of the growing season, they'll pick growth right up.

    I have never had a problem with receipt of bare-root Sarracenia -- so-called "temperamental" varieties included, at any time of the year; if the plants are healthy for a start, there shouldn't be a problem.

    I just planted over a dozen bare-rooted Sarracenia plants and divisions a week or so ago and they're going gang-busters . . .

    Yeah, almost all nurseries sell them bare-root, so you don't have much of a choice. Unless if you're ordering from the place that I think you are that does sell Sarracenia potted.
