    Sarracenia Pot Size

    Hi,

    I have a reasonably very large S. Leucophylla (Titan) in a pot which is about 8 inches deep. The plant seems to be doing pretty well this year, lots of new growth in the first crop of pitchers, but I was just wondering what was the best sort of depth for containers for these plants, ie, how deep does a typical root system go and would 12 inches be considered too deep?

    Hard to say without any pictures but 8 inches sounds fine.

    8" should be very good, but, like MICKEY said, knowing where you live would be very helpful.
