    Dry Sarracenia

    I just picked up my North American CPs from my friend's house. The peat was pretty dry and the S. minor is kinda crispy. The base of the leaves are still green, but it's really dry. Will it recover? Everything else seems to be fine.

    If the roots dried out they are probably toast. If the roots stayed damp they might be ok. Only time and tender loving care will tell.

    I'll check the roots right now. Hoping for the best.

    They're a medium brown color and look fairly healthy. The flytraps and purpurae look fine. I can't even find the sundews.

    As long as the substrate wasn't bone dry. Water them up and hope for the best.

    If you still see green above the soil I would find that a good sign. Give em a drink and sing them a nice love song. And as NaN said, hope for the best.

    Temperate dews like intermedia and rotundifolia will often form non-existent winter buds, they may surprise you and pop up when conditions improve.

    i agree that if you see green, they'll probably be fine. in my experiences, they can withstand being dried out, as long as it's not for too long. the pitchers may wilt and/or die off, but the rhizome will survive.

    Excellent to hear! The mini-bog is saturated now. Hopefully we'll see some new growth soon.
