Carnivors get much-needed TLC
Repotting these plants this month has therefore been a high priority as I countdown the weekends until departure. For the first time I mixed up all the pots -- that is, every pot has a mix of different Sarracenia types in it. I figured it would be a good thing to have fewer pots in total (in which aim I was aided by several rotting rhizomes), and I have long forgotten what all the individual ones are anyway... I hope and believe they will come good in their new pots. They're a bit behind where they usually are at this time of year, but many are shooting up flowers, so it can't be all bad.
Pictured is my collection in October 2006. I'm sorry to say they don't look anywhere near as good as this at the moment. But, fingers crossed, they will in a few months!
