    application on substrate..

    hello guys! wanted to ask you something.
    many of you have seen the Sarracenia in the wild.
    seeing some photos on the net, some Sarracenia in the wild,
    with stones and other minerals.
    But then they can also be a bit of limestone?

    No....as far as I know, no sarracenia grow anywhere near limestone...or are capable of doing so.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    I've seen in some photos there are often many stones ..
    even if they are in the peat bogs.
    So a bit of lime does not create problems?

    Not all stones contain lime....some stones do not leach minerals so easilly.

    No..as far as I am aware....the stones found in Sarracenia habitats are realatively inert, and leach very few minerals at all...so no..Sarracenia do not grow in places where limestone is present.
