I REALLY love Sarracenias. *Here is a possible outdoors growing situation I could offer these lovely plants.
I already own the following container [dimensions are: 26" L x 19-3/4" W x 10-1/2" H]:
I can collect rainwater in buckets and store it in gallon bottles if necessary for watering in between rainstorms. It looks like a mixture of 1/2 spaghum peat and 1/2 sand would be best. It will also have a screen cover constructed over it to try to persuade the local children and squirrels from doing any mischief.
My goal would be to grow sarracenia purpurea and have them overwinter in this container. *This is the only cp native to mid-central Michigan.
Does anyone have an alternate suggestion? *Digging a bog into the ground is not allowed by townehouse management. *A container is the only option and it can't have standing water.
