Sarracenia Pitcher Plant


Bring the wonders of carnivorous plants to your home with the Sarracenia Pitcher Plant. It’s as beautiful as it is deadly (only if you’re an insect of course!) with green pitchers laced with intricate purple veins. Insects are attracted by a trail of nectar-secreting glands that extend downward along the top and into the interior of the pitcher. Once trapped inside the plant will slowly digest its prey.

Watch nature in action with the unique Sarracenia Pitcher Plant. This carnivorous plant makes the perfect gift for yourself or other plant thrill-seekers. Much like a siren’s song, the beautiful Sarracenia Pitcher Plant lures its unsuspecting prey with its naturally produced sweet-smelling nectar. Once its meal has made it inside it is slowly digested by the plant, fueling more growth.

The Sarracenia Pitcher Plant is native to the bogs and wetlands of the Southeastern United States. They prefer indirect to bright light, with the purple veins becoming more prominent with higher light. Water the potting medium to keep it evenly moist, and fill the pitchers ¼ full with rain or distilled water. Keep the humidity around the plant high and avoid drafty areas.
