    Treating frost burned Sarracenia

    I am growing my Sarracenia outside in a container and this winter it got frost burned. The phylodia and the pitchers are brown all the way to the base.

    Is there anything i can do or should i just wait.

    Remove any and all dead leaves.
    If the rhizomes are still good, they should awaken once the temperatures begin warming.

    Cut into the rhizome - if it's brown, it's dead. Keep cutting until you find some white. The plant may or may not recover, and maybe only push out a few phyllodia this year, so patience is the name of the game (or buy another if it's not a rare clone).

    The bottom centimeter of all the leaves are still alive. It's just that the emerging tips are tipped with brown.
