    types of sarrs

    do any sarrs need diffrent care from each other. Like anything special besides the perlite and peat and normal light.

    I plant all my Sarrs in the same mixture, 1 peat : 1 perlite, and they all get the same amount of sunshine and temperatures. The only pitcher that gets a little different care is S.rosea and S.purpurea, because you need to fill their pitchers with water - all other pitchers fill themselves with water through their roots.

    you don't need to fill their pitchers. Let the rain do it, or when you water them naturally. I wouldn't stress about trying to fill their pitchers.

    They all get the same care from me, nothing different about any of them.

    Sarracenia Purpurea can also take much less light than the others. In full sun, they turn completely red/purple. In shade, they remain green with red veins:

    i think the only real differences are some are more cold-hardy than others.

    And some are more sensitive to cooler temperatures. S. leucophylla will survive, but not thrive in a cooler climate, where pupurea ssp. purpurea would do well.

    Now that we are on the subject of differences between Sarrs... Is is generally true that most anthocyanin-free varieties will not tolerate extreme heat/sun like their counterparts? I think I read this in passing some time ago on this forum.
