    Exclamation Help needed

    i have a few sarracenia that are ready to be repotted, but those sarracenia that had repotted previously seems to go dormancy(producing curve leaf) straight away after i repotted it,i place them at their normal growing site(with lots of sunlight and rain)then it start to rot(from base, as those leaf above it get wilted), those left still struggling,anyone has any solution?

    the plant currently half year-1year old


    Pic taken from a healthy 5cm pot sarracenia seedlings, thing get worst when they get repotted

    when they are repotted to a bigger size pot, they start to form dormant leaft, notice the curve one



    after a few months, things continue, they still forming curve leaf, but size is shrinking



    aand it finally ended like that, anyone has any idea on how to save them? will it be possible to repot them without the need to give them dormancy, i living in Malaysia, and my place do not have winter or four seasons

    I've never seen Sarracenia react like that before but then I grow mine in a temperate climate.

    What substrate/medium did you repot them into? You want them in a low nutrient, acidic medium such as fertilizer free sphagnum peat moss.

    From threads in the past from tropical growers Sarracenia will start putting out strange pitchers if they haven't been given dormancy after a number of years.

    See this recent thread Dormancy in the Tropics for some ideas on how to handle dormancy issues.

    Yep. Dormancy required eventually.

    I'm sure you could devise some way to trigger dormancy by moving to less light gradually and maybe throwing them in a fridge at night until they go dormant then use the fridge method to store them 6-8 weeks. Just throwing out suggestions.

    What's the worst that can happen to them that hasn't already happened to them?

    What was the time period for the plants decline - the time from when it was repotted to when the leaves turned brown?

    Allen,

    I am going to yield to NaN on this one. I would take his advice over my own.
