    Man, that really stinks. I had a rough winter here in NJ as well, most of my sarracenia didn't start growing until last week, and I lost a few divisions to a late frost. With any luck, you'll find a replacement soon!

    I hear ya! Different variables, but I lost most of my Sarracenias, a cobra lily, and all but one VFT. We just moved in November, a couple days before 'Snowvember'. I put the temperates in the basement and the basement was a little warmer than anticipated. I also erred on the side of keeping them too dry. Lost all but 3 pots of pygmy sundews by having them too dry. Lost most of the Petiolaris Complex because the heating unit (Baxi Boiler) was out for 4 days. I had plenty of 'shots in the arm' with replacement plants, and most of them died. About the only genera that came through with minimal losses were the Mexican butterworts. I do have false(?) HCW, that look like crap right now, if you're interested, next month.

    Wow, everyone had bad luck this winter. Lost more of my plants this year to rot than any other (prompting me to start a repot session on all my old pots), and still have some time to go....
    But losing Slack? Ouch. Yet to even have that plant, can't imagine having one crap out on me....
    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.

    Rough winter here too. Thought I lost a lot of plants, but many are just slow to comeback. Jury is still out on psitticina, and a couple others, but I finally have some buds, too. And more vfts survived than i initially thought.

    I think I lost my psittacina too. Two of my leucophylla are just starting to put up their first pitchers of the season.

    So, it wasn't just me. A couple of S. purps made it. My S. oreophila looks ok but no new growth yet. All the other species and hybrids just didn't make it...

    Just out of curiosity, what is your soil mix for them?
    Usually equal mixes of perlite, peatmoss, and LFS.

    Sounds like many had bad luck this winter. Guess I'm not alone.
    The slacks rhizome was brown, dried wood when I checked it.
    One of my Purps had large rhizome death. Have some new growth out of the few pieces that lived.
    Pretty much the Sar not effected was my S. oreophila which looks great right now.
