A beautiful pitcher plant that turns red in the summer and fall!
Makes an excellent addition to your collection or bog garden! These plants are very young, and grown in a tissue culture lab to ensure healthy disease free plants.
Sarracenias like their feet wet as they grow in bogs in the wild. Please use rain water, distilled water, or reverse osmosis. Tap water will burn the roots and eventually kill the plant. Don’t allow plant to dry out, as it can do irreversible damage and kill the plant. Always keep some water in saucer. The plants will go dormant in fall and winter. This is normal, the plants need winter dormancy to stay healthy and live for many years. Protect from arctic blasts by brining plant indoors if in the pot, or a tarp over the bog garden.
The plant that you will receive won’t be dormant. Just grow it inside until there’s no more frost in your area. Adjust plant to full sun. A few weeks in shade, two weeks in part sun, then graduate to full sun. Do this carefully to avoid sunburn.
