Scientific Name: Sarracenia leucophylla
Our Carnivorous Pitcher Plant comes in a 12cm Nursery Pot.
If you are looking for something that is completely out of the norm, then this is the plant for you!
These carnivorous plants are often referred to as Trumpet Pitchers due to their slender trumpet-like leaves (yes, they are leaves!). The Pitcher Plant is a wonderful conversation piece, with its gradual bright green to crimson colouring and its leaves reaching upwards and topped with delicately frilled 'lid'.
The Carnivorous Pitcher Plant is a fantastic exotic-looking addition to your plant collection. And you might find that it helps keep the mosquitoes at bay too!
Follow these instructions to keep your Carnivorous Pitcher Plant healthy and happy.
Water: Keep soil moist at all times, do not let it dry out. Cut back on watering a little during winter (dormant period). Try to water with rainwater or other acidic or 'soft' water.
Light: Very bright to full sunlight
Humidity: Humidity should not pose a problem if the plant is consistently watered. If your home is very dry, consider raising the humidity.
Fertilize: No fertilizer is needed for the Pitcher Plant.
