    Judith hindle

    so i got a judith hindle(about 10 traps, and 4 in high) a few weeks ago, the tips had been cut off from the shipper and the tips(what was left) had slight browning, now half the stalk is brown, it gets watered evry few days....and has about about 15 oz of water poured on it a week(maybe more) its under two 6500k 2000 lumen tubes(12 inches away) and 2200 lumen spirals...12 inches away. day time temp is 80, night time 50's...why is its browning?

    where do you live? in the US? most North American CPs require what is known as a cold/wet dormancy.
    take your plant, and leave it outside. it will come back to life on its own once when spring sets in.

    Well if you got it from a reputable seller the pitcher were cut off and brown because the plant is suppose to be dormant right now. Even for an active growing season, 6200 lumens is barely over half the minimum a Sarracenia will require but at 12 inches I doubt it's even getting that much. Also 15oz a week in a dry environment is no where near enough. Sarrs tend to prefer a near saturated medium, usually done by letting the pot sit in water 1/4 of the way up.

    It would help us more if you could give us some more information so we can help steer you in the right direction.
    How long has the plant been in your care?
    Where do you live? (N,S,E,W part of state)
    What medium are you using?
    What kind of water are you using?

    is this what your judith hindle is supposed to look like.
    if so it should be dormant right now

    its a north american sarracenia, and needs its dormancy to remain healthy . should be outside year round,
    like amphirion said , take it outside it will come back in the spring

    If dormancy has already been broken for multiple weeks, trying to put it outside and re-enter it into dormancy will completely throw it out of wack. The question still is though how long has it been in your care. It'll be best for the plant to skip 1 dormancy then to try to fix it. Personally I would not follow the above advice...

    If the plant IS in dormancy mode and IS indoors you need to go very easy on the water and keep the medium only moist, or you risk the chance of fungal infection due to poor air circulation. If the plant is outside year round you really don't need to worry about this.
