These are my personal plants. I have an S. minor, S. flava, and an S. oreo x leuco. They are dieing back now. It is extremely windy today with gusts at or exceeding 40mph. The S. flava was caught by the wind and tipped over and I had to go upright it. *I have irises that I trim back so that they do not get uprooted by winds. I don't do this until they begin to go dormant on me. The Sarracenias have an incredibly shallow root system and I really just wanted to know if it was ok to cut them back to say 6". *
The other question I have is... is there any seed on these plants anywhere? *I went out specifically to look and I blatantly am not seeing anything that even remotely resembles seed anywhere on these plants yet they have been in the ground for a few months and they do have pitchers.
White blotches on plants are a squirrel/rabbit/deer repellent of some sort.
