    Unhappy

    Hello,

    I have been searching for information on Sarracenia oreophila and have found some of the information I need.

    However, I am minus the care instructions for when the plant is dormant.

    1. How wet should the soil mixture be while dormant and can it dry out somewhat between waterings?

    My understanding is that the plant goes dormant during the dry summer months and returns to active growth during the spring and early summer months.

    2. Can I use the water tray method for this plant year round or only during the active growing season?

    I have read that keeping it in standing water will rot the plant's roots.

    3. What temperatures should the plant be kept at while dormant?

    I understand that it can be kept as low as 10F.

    Thanks,

    Nick

    Nick, this is just another Sarracenia relax! Er...a fedrally endangered Sarracenia. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] Anyhow, my Oreophila has started to put out phyllodia right now and I gorw it on the tray method. From what I hear it doesn't matter how wet you keep it, as it will still makes early phyllodia. Also it can be kept as low as 0*F er can go that low without anyharm, you must remeber this is a very high altitudal Sarracenia and is quite hardy. Also on watering yeah I have let it dry slightly between waterings with NO HARM. But wayter it as you would any Sarracenia. Also mines in a Peat/Sand mix if that helps or you were wondering what to plant it in ect. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks for the help. Mine is in a sand/peat mix and has a layer of moss growing on the surface. The last of the pitchers finally dried up and will be cut off.

    I just wasn't finding the information I needed on the plant. Well, at least not enough to satisfy me.

    Thanks,

    Nick

    You can grow oreophila as you would any other Sarracenia.

    I find that this Sarr is a lot more prone to rot than other Sarrs. I have already had 2 battles with the scourge Botrytis and the last one ended up eating my main rhizome and only leaving a tiny side shoot. I have gone to a pure LF sphag media and I keep my plant a little drier now. I also keep it off the tray. Just my experience though

    The one in the pot that had all the problems was in 1:1 peat:sand. I do have a small plant growing ing 1:1:1 peat:sand:LF sphag but it is in an undrained tub and I let the soil get a littl dry before watering, so I don't know if it is the media or the watering that makes the difference there. I planted my remaining sprig in pure LF because that has anti-fungal properties, sepecially against Botrytis
