    Well, it seems my invincible minor is losing it. I have two lants in a pot (im ready to repot this year). one is doing ok with a flower up, but both of them are having thier forming leaves browing once they get a certain height. The leaves im talkn bout are ollder ones not yet opn, so maybe age of the leaves is the problem. I know the pot (5 inch) is too small, so im going to repot near dormancy. Its outdoors getting 5 hours (give or take an hour or so) and using the tray method. my other sarra's, purp and j. hindle, are doing ok also. Any suggestions/?

    Maybe we should cut off all/most of the wiliting/wilted leaves? itll save the palnt energy.

    Don't cut off anything that is still alive. It will get the plant more light and help with photosynthesis.

    Hi Cephalotus,
    It sounds like the conditions are not ideal for your plants. How are you growing the, do you keep them outside or in a greenhouse? What is the climate like where you live?

    Browning of Sarracenia pitcher leaves on young growth can be caused by lack of humidity, too much heat, too dry a compost mix. With Sarracenia mixes, after repotting, make sure the compost is firm, not loose. This will help with the water uptake by the plant.

    Please give me some more info about your set up and I would be happy to help!
    Best Regards

    Mike King
