    Sarracenia Frost Damage

    For the past week its been raining like mad, then a few hours ago the temp dropped down
    to 30. I walked out to the bog and found that every single sarracenia had severe frost damage to the growing pitchers.
    Large splotches of dark green show where they were frozen. all growth tips have been frosted. (I can get pictures if needed.)

    Can these recover or are they doomed?

    It will slow them down, but they should recover in due time. I had this happen a few years back and by mid-summer they looked completely normal.
    Good Growing!

    Had to move all my plants inside yesterday, we had like 6 inches of snow dropped on us.....after all that nice warm weather too
    But, if anything freezes, while that leaf won't live past the incident the plant as a whole will put up new growth.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    OH good, thank you. I was about to throw a Fit. every time I ask, people say that you shouldnt worry about
    the bogs in cold weather. Either way, I just hope they recover.

    Carlton - Its going to freeze again tonight. That mass gauntlet of weather we have been getting is nuts
