I suppose another way of judging whether it's successful or not is to see what happens when growth resumes in the spring. I assume some of the nutrition is stored in the rhizome over winter.
Is there any way they can come back after going brown and crspy? I've still got it, so there may be hope!!!
hey yall i was wondering how much milk or egg whites i could put into my sarracenia flava,and how long does it take to see any improvement.

I fed my Purp. about a 3/4cm bit of egg white. I had growth straight afterwards!
I must agree with venusashtrap. I gave my Flava and my Purp. a couple of drops of whole milk, and the difference was evident in less than 48 hours. Little leaf shoots just appeared!!

Hey all, sorry I didn't get back to you sooner... I busted my ankle up on the basketball court this morning and have been laid up on Tylenol with Codene all day. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]
any how, I just hobbled outside to check on them, and between the plants (1 Lucy, 1 Mardi Gras, 1 Oreophylla (producing TONS of phylodia right now (to hot in texas) and 2 purps) I have a total of 11 pitchers either new or forming, some of them are of substantial size!

thanks for the continued interest!
