Purple Pitcher transition (Saracenia purpurea)
In early January, after returning from a trip down the southeast coast and seeing many carnivorous plants, I got a couple of the deathcube Lowes plants as an Xmas stocking stuffer. The split rock didn't makes it, but the P.P. seems to be thriving. Based on this one and other forums, I didn't "winter" the plant as it was only a couple of inches high. I took it out of the cube and 50/50 mixed it into a small reptile cage, and place it on the window sill on bright days, and on a kitchen counter with gro-lights above it when not. New shoots seem to pop up overnight, and each shoot seems to grow larger and have more color. When and how should I effectively make the transition to the outdoors, and when should I bring it indoors for dormancy. Also, just how much drainage is needed if I transfer it to a larger pot environment? Thanx!
