    It's too bad you don't know the age... it looks young, and if it is under 2 years old you could probably skip dormancy. To be safe though, I would put it through dormancy.

    I know what you mean about not being able to play... I just got my Leah Wilkerson and Okee giant and both are dormant Here's to the spring! lol

    It looks like a S. 'Judith Hindle' but wait until it shows its full coloration during the growing season in the sun.

    The acrylic coffin plants are almost all grown from tissue culture. Its probably not more than 8 months out of the flask from the first explant. Probably at least 3/4 of its life so far has been under 24 hour artificial lighting and strictly controlled temperatures and humidity. The plant is going to need at least one growing season to get in sync with your climate and photoperiod.

    Skip dormancy. You people are too hung up on dormancy. Yes, for most temperate carnivorous plants dormancy is required for the long term health of the plant. By long term we're talking 2-3+. People don't seem to get past the word required. Your plants are not going to keel over and die suddenly in the spring if you miss on dormancy period.

    I bought this Sarracenia at Lowe's on New Year's Eve 2006. From it's appearance it turns out to be a S. 'Judith Hindle'. It was not dormant when I bought it. I just kept it on a west facing windowsill in my heated living room until March.

    18 May 2007 - I repotted before moving outdoors, turns out there were two plants. This is one of them


    20 Oct 2009 - notice the flowers. Mighty unhealthy for not having dormancy the first year don't you think?
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    NAN - I agree with you. In fact, I believe a recent article in ICPN discussed strategies on how to boost young pitcher plants (under 2 years old) through dormancy with Osmocote fertilizer pellets. I have a young Sarracenia leucophylla 'Hurricane Creek White' plant that is now under T5s and is being fertilized and will skip dormancy. Using this strategy should yield strong growth. I will however start putting it through dormancy next year.

    Just so we're all on the same page, I don't do this with my adult specimens. Only the young ones.

    Not a Number did you just skip the first year of dormancy or all of them?

    How can I tell the difference between Daina's Delight (is that really how it's spelled?) and Judith Hindle? I looked at pics of both, and at my plant, and can't tell a difference really.

    This may help you to distinguish them. Towards the bottom, center of the picture you have Judith Hindle and towards, the right you can see Daina's Delight:

    no burden heavier than that of conscious life. "
