    This bog is currently peat moss/ perlite but i've switched to peat moss/ silica sand now, I just prefer it overall. What's the sign that your peat needs replaced? Just a burnt look or is there a 2 yr max unspoken rule?

    Replace the soil every couple of years, early in the season, just as the plants are coming out of dormancy. I often replace the compost annually -- a 1:1 mix of sphagnum peat and horticultural sand in my case -- if and when I take divisions of my various Sarracenia. I notice that my plants are noticeably more vigorous with fresh soil . . .

    Sometimes it happens. I have two flava rugeliis with have grown strange leaves that have gone brown and wilted at the top. Others around are doing great.

    S. leucophylla can be picky. If the roots have been disturbed, some clones sulk all year.

    You're best off buying a few different clones - you'll probably find that some suit your conditions better.

    That's what I was fearing as well but I really dont have a choice, these need to be unpotted and repotted every year. It's just too cold during the winter to leave them outside. I tested that theory with a purp venosa. It croaked.

    F R e N c H 3 z how do you go about wintering your plants in Indiana. I thought I was successful this winter but as the season is going I lost a leucophylla tarnok and judith hindle. In Iowa I put mine in a cooler in the garage however I kept mine potted and I think they were to wet and lost the 2 because of root rot. Any help would be appreciated.

    If it makes you feel any better, here are my two S. 'Judith Hindle' making strange pitchers, phyllodias, and things in between! The cultivar has both leucophylla and flava, which make phyllodia. Both plants made a couple of big, healthy pitchers at the start of the growing season, but are now sending these up:

    It's been slow to warm up here in NY this spring, I'll bet that has something to do with it. Things have been slow to take off here so far.
