Sarracenia, also known as pitcher plant, or trumpet pitcher plant is a unique plant that captures and digests insects to uptake minerals. Is the perfect example of evolution. It is easy to grow and is the best carnivorous plant for beginners. It is native to the Southeastern United States growing wild in bogs all along the Southern Coast of the United States from Texas to Florida, up the East Coast all the way to Canada and in some parts of Montana. They make beautiful displays and will be the most colorful plants in your outdoor garden, perfect conversational pieces which will amaze any plant enthusiast. They have tubular pitcher-shaped leaves with trap openings facing the center of the crown. It thrives in full sun to partial shade. When watering sarracenia, it requires mineral-free water, so use rain, distilled or R.O water . Tap water contains too many minerals and/or chemicals that are harmful to their root system. Sarracenia requires a soil mixture of perlite, peat moss and silica sand, and loves wet soil. Must use plastic pots, or 100% glazed pots. Unglazed clay pots leach minerals also harmful to sarracenia. You can propagate them via seeds, though is much easier by division.
I’m offering single rhizomes divisions that are in winter dormancy, so you can enjoy a complete cycle of this beautiful plant (Activity begins late winter to early Spring) .
-Single shipping charge for up to 5 rhizomes (because is all I can fit in a small box). If you want purchase more than 5 and less than 10 rhizomes you will have to place 2 separate orders to cover the cost of a larger box. BUY 10 RHIZOMES in a single order and I will give you FREE SHIPPING (Will refund you shipping charge).
-Rhizomes will ship bareroot, you may get you own sarracenia substrate ( contact me and I can tell you mixing ratios) or you may purchase the one I offer here (substrate + pot-enough for 2 rhizomes). Media price includes the additional cost for shipping.
Check weekly, there will be more added during the winter!!
Plants must be grown using the tray method or bog style pot. With the tray method they must sit in a tray with about 1′ of water. You may let the tray dry out in between watering, but must never let the substrate dry out. They do require a cool period of dormancy, all North American states get cold enough to do that, but some places may be too cold to be kept outside, so they may be brought indoors as long as they remain cool enough to put them into dormancy. They must be brought out into full sun in early spring time (as soon as it shows activity) or as soon as the weather warms up. Any questions please reach out.
