    As long as the pots are watered, you should be OK. At least, I think... My plants don't seem to notice.

    Gotta love a topic title that begins as this does! Droughty? An adjective? Goes along with ping-a-lings! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Seriously, some people normally put water in the pitchers, irregardless of drought conditions. I think it is S. purpurea that they don't.

    No; purps like water in the pitcher. Well, maybe they don't, but the way they sit there with pitchers wide open makes them fill with water when it rains. The taller ones make more of an effort to keep water out.

    Yep, droughty is an adjective, it's just no longer in common use. Farmers used it back in the old days, I guess. Part of my mission in life is to revive weird old words and sayings.

    I should have said..We've had a dearth of precipitation this Vernal season.

    I don't have any ping-a-lings, but I don't mind. I got enough to deal with. CP's have the world's steepest learning curve in the plant world, I think.

    Almost as bad as parenting and husbanding!

    I may regret this - but, in general, I don't think so. For most of the temperate CPs - good sun, slighly acidic, non-fertile substrate and non-stagnant pure water will let them thrive.

    Sure there are some 'problem children' that require special conditions to thrive (highland cps, some petiolaris, etc) and transitioning them from terrarium conditions to outside requires patience but....

    Whenever I have some plants that aren't doing so hot, I try to look at photos of natural habitat and read up on their normal growing conditions - many times we make it much tougher than it needs to be... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]
