Also known as: Pitcher Plant, Purple Pitcher, Trumpet Pitcher, Sarracenia Leucophylla
Another carnivore is in the hood! Watch out bugs, Sarracenia is a bog loving plant that attracts bugs to its pitchers. Once the bugs enter the nectar lined chamber the plant shuts its lid trapping the bug in there to be digested and turned into feed. Tune in to the needs of this plant and surely you'll catch the [carnivore] bug too!
Care: Full sun is needed to thrive. Bright light if full sun is not available. Keep this plant wet at all times or moist at least. Water with acidic water or add a few drops of lemon to the watering can to make it suitable. Reduce watering in winter and colder months.
Sarracenia are pet friendly.
