    Sarracenia Leucophylla Repotting

    I potted up my bare Sarracenia Leucophylla rhizomes today. I used a sandy 1:1 sand to peat mix. Did I plant the rhizomes right, and do I need to plant them deeper?

    Also, Can I keep these in the tray that they are in? There is a hole on the bottom, and a tray underneath it.

    Here are the pictures.

    The whole setup:



    Two of the rhizomes that are planted:





    And my other, smaller bin:



    Thanks for any help,

    Will

    I'd definently plant them deeper, and are you planning to keep them inside?
    Good Growing!

    Thanks for the advice. I am only keeping them inside until I am sure it's summer outside. Mother Nature tricks us a lot in Michigan...
    They should be out before any leaves are ready to open.

    They look very healthy! It's plant the growing ends deeper. They generally like to have half of the rhizome above ground and the other half below.

    think of burying the rhizomes "half deep"..
    I would put the soil level about here:

    They should be out before any leaves are ready to open.
    If its warmer than 35 degrees F, day or night, its much better for them to be outside..
    If I see a forecast overnight low of 32, I still wont bring them in..
    my "cutoff" temp is 27..if I see a forecast overnight low of 27 or colder in the early spring or late autumn, I put the plants in the garage for the night..
    anything above 35 is downright toasty warm for them..
    they should definitely be outside in 40's, 50's and above..in full sunlight..
    much healthier than being indoors..

    Nice rhizomes.

    Like everyone else said, rhizomes need to be deeper; half buried, half above soil. Any shoots just below the surface will push up through the soil.

    My potted sarrs do fine outside in temps in the 20s as long as it warms up to above freezing during the day. I put them close to the house on the south side during freezing temps and shelter only if freezing winds.

    This year I lucked into a willing hobbyist from our CP group who took my Sarracenia & VFT collection for the winter. He had them in his garage. For the most part, the temps were ~40 F. But during one cold snap the temps got to ~22 F. He was worried that it might have killed my plants. It didn't. He did a fine job taking care of them. Only one plant didn't make it.

    BTW, Scot, if you know where Mennes Nursery is, and it sin't too far for ya, we meet once a month.

    Related to ths discussion, I am now using 9" tall pots, the kind that greenhouses use for saplings.
