    I too had heard that S. oreophila was prone to rotting, but had divided several plants early last season and thought that I could well afford a loss or two. All survived though success (measured by persistence of pitchers into the Fall) was mixed. Most simply produced phyllodia and / or attempted a late season flowering. . .

    I was dividing mine yesterday in preparation for this year. Last year, I only had three growing points. This year, it is upwards of ten. I am very pleased as this is one of my favorites. I have whatever variety that ****** sent me a few years back. Speaking of which, does anyone know if it is a particular variety or if it is just straight S. oreophila?

    getting Oreo's

    Look up Meadowbrook Biological Research Station on the internet. If you become a member you can get Oreo's at half price. They have the required permits to ship across state lines. Nice Oreo's as well as other Sarracenia's.
