The smaller, older pictures on my giant S. leucophylla are beginning to die back, as well as my S. purpurea pitchers. I guess the nights that dipped into the 40s in the GH initiated the dormancy. They are on one of the top shelves in my GH, so they are getting the warmest temps. If I put them on the floor, they will get nights in the 30s or 40s and days in the 50s. I was thinking of just putting them down there for a winter. More than likely I'll forget about them, so can I put them in a dish of water to keep the medium moist?
Also, what should I do to the pitchers? Do I cut them off? Where should I cut them back to? Anything I need to be careful about or watch out for? Would it be best to just leave them on there? About what month do they usually come out of dormancy? Will they know when to come out or should I induce the growing by moving them up to the warmer shelves between the end of February and the beginning of March?
Also, I looked in all of the pitchers on my S. leucophylla when I brought it home and there was no liquid in it. I have a faint memory of there being some fluids in the purpurea pitchers, but I never saw any fluids in my S. leucophylla pitchers. What could be the cause of this? Maybe it is just late in the season or something? The fuzz under the lid is a bit sticky and gets goo on your if you rub the hairs. I have it and all of my other sarrs and dews in trays of water, so their media is always moist.
