The wisdom is that one should open up the rhizomes of Sarracenia in early spring to allow the penetration of sunshine to encourage growth and remove dead and dying growth close to the rhizome, to allow air circulation and reduce the risk of rot and mould.
I generally do this in late March or early April, however due to the mild weather and me being at a loose end I decided to make a start at the weekend.
This is a seed grown moorei, leucophylla Baldwin County very large X flava rubicorpora giant red, covered with moss and debris with a Darlingtonia growing from a stolon and you might just see a psittacina too, before I started cleaning up.
This is them after I finished, don’t worry Fred the Darlingtonia will be rescued before it gets bullied by the moorei.
And the pile of Sphagnum from just this one plant, I reckon I will collect 40-50 litres from this bog, which I have earmarked for another project.
