Container for sarracenia?
I just brought my sarracenia inside from their overwintering spot, to plant into a real container for the coming season. I needed something lightweight, and something that would be insulating for overwintering them. I used a Styrofoam cooler filled with Sand, Peat, Long fiber sphagnum peat moss, Pearlite, some charcoal, and some crushed lava rock (i was at the end of all my bags, so i had to mix what i had).
I put a few drainage holes on the side of the cooler, a few inches from the bottom, so it wouldn't get too waterlogged.
Does anyone see a reason why this wouldn't work? I don't even know if my plants lived through the winter, so I'm taking a chance on this whole thing. I thought the roots looked alive, but who knows. I really want to keep them happy!
