    The plant has been way off this year, probably due to being repotted and us having such a cool, sunless spring & summer. It only grew phyllodia (I forget the spelling) this spring, but is starting a new crop of what I hope are fall pitchers, not more phyllodia. I grow all my Sarracenias in LFS or LFS + lava rock.[/QUOTE]
    herenorthere,
    Did you grow your plants outside in pots all year (i.e. even this past winter)?

    Hi Utricman -

    I am in Connecticut about 2 hours North of you.

    My leucos are doing well this year. They are outside, in pots that sit in large trays with 3 to 5 inches of water. They get at least 5 hours of sunlight a day. I have noticed that the ones that have done the best are in LFS mixed with a tad of sand or perlite and are in deeper pots, some even in those 10 inch tall half gallon nursery pots.

    On another note, I hope you can make it to our New England Carnivorous Plant Show on Saturday October 11. It will be at the greenhouses at Roger Williams Park in Providence, Rhode Island. Maybe some of you from the NY area could carpool. Our Prez., John Phillip, is trying to reserve a block of hotel rooms nearby. Also it will concur with the first night of the amazing Annual Haunted Pumpkin Trail at RWP Zoo - over 5,000 carved illuminated pumpkins on a 3 acre trail: http://www.rwpzoo.org/jackolantern/c...ectacular.html

    You say that they are doing well, but have they produced the late summer/early fall crop of large pitchers? I am saying that because mine are doing well, but have never produce the large pitchers. IF yours are doing well, then maybe my lack large fall pitchers isdue to using 100% peat. My plants generally received about the same amount of light.

    Thanks for the invitation, unfortunately I will be in Europe at that time.

    Usually by December the frost has killed of all the green parts and ther is none left. So in a word, no.

    My S. leucophylla does stay outdoors all year here in CT. But in late fall I sink the pot into a sheltered plant bed and cover it with > 1 ft. of pin oak leaves. But I pull the S. leaves and pitchers up so they are get more light. During the winter of 2001-2002, which never reached 0F, the plant stayed green through the winter, even in some of the exposed leaves.

    We had a lot of snow last winter and I now know to keep the snow from piling up because it melts in the sun and refreezes in the leaves. That creates a suffocating mound of leafy ice and I lost one of my pots of Bletilla striata orchids and nearly lost my S. minor. I'll rig up some kind of awning over the area this winter to keep things drier. The area is shared by several Sarracenias, potted hardy terrestrial orchids, fruit tree root stock and whatever else needs a sheltered, but outdoor winter home.

    Nepenths gracilis,
    Looking good. Looks like your plants are in some sort of plastic enclosure. What are your conditions, winter, summer, soil? I am trying to gather as much info as I can so that I can compare this to my conditions... Thanks.
