Product Description

Curious plants that will certainly get a conversation going. The leaves are shaped like pitchers with liquid at the bottom trapping any unwary insects that fall in. They get most of their nutrients this way as they grow in very poor soils.

  • Curious plants that are fun to grow.
  • Collect insects in traps.
  • Very colourful pitcher-shaped leaves all year round.
  • Happiest in cooler conditions.
  • Can live a long time if conditions are right.

Product Details

Additional information
Insects, attracted by the colorful pitchers and nectar around the lip, will fall into the large hollow pitcher tubes and find it impossible to climb back out due to fine downward pointing hairs. Eventually, the insects will succumb and are then slowly digested by the plant to provide nutrients for further growth. If you want to learn more about the biology and science

Planting instructions
You seldom need to repot a Sarracenia into a bigger pot unless the container you're starting with is very small. As a base guide, consider potting on once every 2 to 3 years and this is primarily to refresh the growing medium to ensure it holds water correctly as well as removing any build up of minerals that have occurred over time.

Watering instructions
Sarracenia require mineral-free water. If your tap water is relatively pure (less than 50 parts per million in dissolved minerals), then you can safely water your Sarracenia with it. Otherwise, use bottled distilled water. Keep the soil wet at all times. You can do this by setting the plant in small amounts of standing water, no more than halfway up the pot.
