AKA 'Pitcher Plant'

3" pot

Care Info:

Pot in a heavily Peat (or alternative medium) based mixture. Keep soil evenly moist. Distilled water is highly recommended as tap water can damage affect the health of the plant. Keep plant in 1/4 inch of water in the growing season, and do not water from the top. During cooler months, keep soil evenly moist, but do not place pot in standing water. 

Full direct sun. If kept indoors, place on the sunniest windowsill, within a few inches of the window. Sarracenia require a cold winter dormancy, so in cold months, ensure the plant is in a window where cool temps are consistent (may need to be moved to garage or other unheated room, depending on your climate. Outdoors, Sarracenia can tolerate temps that dip below freezing

Sarracenia are a carnivorous plant, meaning they lure and trap insects in their deep ‘pitchers, using a secretion to 'digest' the insect (or sometimes small rodents in certain large, species). If the plant does not have access to insects, you can feed it yourself to help maintain its health. No need to add water to Sarracenia pitchers though. Added humidity may be helpful to keep plants happiest. Fertilizer is not recommended.
