    marf,

    Why do you want to use limestone? (if thats what you want to do). Don't risk using it if that is what you are going to do. They don't really need any rocks to grow succesfully.

    Limestone is bad for Sarracenias and other carnivorous plants because it raises the soil Ph too high into the Alkaline end of the scale and carnivorous plants like Acidic soil best.
    DO NOT USE LIMESTONE.

    That may have something to do with the fact that almost no matter where you go on earth, you are going to find stones....some are inert, some are full of easy to leach minerals, but there are stones EVERYWHERE.....so of course you are gonna see them in Sarracenia habitats, but the ones found there are not made of limestone...Limestone is a rock made mostly of calcium carbonate....the rocks found in Sarracenia habitats are made of other less harmful elements.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    i know here in WI, you can find S. purpurea growing in alkaline wetlands, known as fens. I've been wanting to snag a few seeds from one and see if they'll grow in typical conditions. It's just that I'm on the opposite end of the state where the fens occur and rarely get down that way.
