    Hi everyone.
    I bought two sarracenias on carnivorous plants festival..I think that they are two different types, but I have got a problem with one of them..Look what is going on with one of them..Is it normal that it is dry at the end? Not every "leave" (I don't know how to call it) is dry, but most of them look like they are withering..

    What kind of water are you using? Tap water or rain water?

    Pitcher plants are typically grown in a peat-based mix and/or sphagnum moss in a container that is immersed in shallow water. The medium in your container does not look familiar. The dried trumpet tops could indicate a need for higher humidity.

    Disclaimer: I don't have personal experience in growing pitcher plants.
