    I wonder if you're seeing more rot because of the relative lack of light. 4 hours of direct sunlight for Sarracenia doesn't seem like much.

    I just started with Trichodetma this week. I have lots of hope for it with all of my CPs.
    I'd love to hear about the results.

    This past winter and spring was the first time La Muerte Pulposa struck my plants.

    Rhizome rot, where the growth points and other parts of the rhizome turn brown and mushy. I've read that it can be caused by fungi, bacteria, and fertilizer.

    It's possible. In the past couple of years, they have received full sun during the summer. This year, I wasn't able to monitor them during the weekdays, so I had to limit sun to prevent them from drying out. So far, only the S. flava seems to be affected. I don't think there's much hope for it because I'm not seeing any growth in the salvaged growth points.

    N. ampullaria seeds are sprouting three weeks after sowing.
