    When is the best season to repot Sarracenia?

    Hi ,
    Some Sarracenias dies after repoted or divided here and can somebody help me?
    S. leucophylla, S. alata, S. rubra and S. psittacina no problem.
    S. flava, S. purpurea and S. minor dies after repoted. It is not always but sometimes I lost more then 50%.
    Has any fungus that attact the roots or rizomes?
    Any help is welcome.
    Thank you very much.

    Typically, Sarracenia are re-potted and / or divided just as they are emerging from dormancy in the early Spring; but I have also done so in the Summer months without a problem. Why those particular species posed a problem is unknown to me. It could be anything, from disease, pests, to choice of composts . . .

    Repotting is usually never a problem for me at any time of the year. Within a week growth picks right back up. I would stay away from dividing though until the rhizomes are dormant in mid-winter or early spring then go ahead and split them.

    Thanks for quickly unswers.
    I will try to identify the fungus.
    Just one more question, how hot is your summer?
    Here, the temperature become to 32ºC, is very hot I think.

    Sarracenia experience periods of temperatures well in excess of 32˚C in most of their native habitats during Summer months . . .

    My summers sometimes reach 40 Celsius and above for a few days in a row. On average though my temperatures tend to be 32-35 Celsius during peak summer temps. Some growers in CA like Brokken experience much higher temps then that and grow them no problem as long as water is consistently replenished. In the wild, Sarrs will also experience temps higher then this, you have nothing to worry about temperature wise.

    Thanks again BigBella and FReN3z.
    Another problem is to get seeds from S. purpurea, S. flava and S. minor. These especies don`t rpoduce seeds here. Others like S. leucophylla, S. alata and his hibrids rpoduce a lot of seeds.
    Do you now why? or it is normal.
    Thanks

    Do you pollinate them or do you leave it up to open pollination? Even if you do the pollination yourself some seeds will not develop though the majority should if the pollination is done properly.
