About the Sarracenia Carnivorous Plant
The Sarracenia is a carnivorous plant. It produces a nectar laced with poison that intoxicates vising insects. Insects are attracted to its colourful pitchers, but once entering, downwards facing hairs trap them withing the plant. The plant enzymes then digests the insect.
Sarracenia is a carnivorous pitcher plant that originates from North America, most commonly found around the southeastern coastal plains. They are fly catches by nature and really easy for beginner gardeners to grow and care for under the right conditions. Pitcher plants grow in low-nutrient water-logged soils, so can handle the living conditions a glass vase will offer. They get the nutrients they need from catching prey, minimising the need to feed your plant. They do require acidic water though to thrive as tap water will produce a negative build-up of minerals.
How to water
During growing season, because the Sarracenia grows in water-logged, bog conditions you'll want to keep the soil permanently moist for your plant to remain healthy. Avoid getting water inside the pitchers.
During the colder resting period, you'll need to adjust your watering schedule to avoid over watering and rotting the roots.
This sun loving plant will need a good supply of sunlight. Style in a space where it will have access to bright, full sun. To really thrive, it will want direct sunlight, but you could keep it on a very bright east of west facing windowsill as a last resort.
In the winter resting period, normally between November and February, these pitchers like to be cold. Try to avoid placing near any heat source to allow your plant to stay cool, like near a window or in a shed.
The best soil for a Sarracenia is Loam. It should poorly drain to create the water-logged conditions of a natural bog habitat. An acidic potting medium should be used with moss.
The Sarracenia is a semi-evergreen foliage that you can expect to last for between 2-5 years. It retains colour throughout the year, but may loose some colour during die-back in winter dormancy.
The Winter dormancy tends to last between November and February. As the winter dormancy period ends each year, you can divide your plant if required.
