    Like Manny stated: Grow 'em dry.
    A biologist friend of ours found a stand of minor in Ft. Pierce, FL, east of I-95, which would be the warmest climate for Sarracenia known to us. This places them...

    Droseraguy,
    Your squat pitchered plant reminds me of one plant Bruce has he calls "Dianiana Rex". It has large squat pitchers. I would suspect the squat shape may be the influence of N. northiana.
