    hey about 10 of my sarrs pitchers are drying up i dont know why so im thinking of repotting it...i cannot see the soil of the sarrs cuz it quite overcrowded so im going to repot it in a bigger pot and with 100% long fibred spahgum moss,i need some repotting tips...
    are the roots of the sarrs long?if it is ill be extra careful
    what will happen if i accidentally damage some roots?thx
    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    It could be several reasons, but if it is an individual crown with the leaves withering, it could be a fungal infection. The only cure would be to lift the plant out of the pot, cut out the infected crown and remove any onfected rhizome. Cut the brown interior back until you have only white rhizome to be sure
