We have so many beautiful and unique Sarracenia hybrids in the nursery; too many to put each one up on the website.
We will pick one of our plants and send it out to you. This is a really fun way to build up your American Pitcher Plant collection. It's always an awesome surprise when you get your plant in the mail! Often times these are really special plants that we’d been holding to see if we needed them for breeding, sometimes siblings of exceptional seed selected crosses.
The plants in the above photos are an example of the variation and size of the hybrids we have available.
Sun: Full sun outdoors
Water: Always sitting in at least two inches of distilled or purified water, they prefer deep saucers of water or undrained containers in order to recreate their very water logged conditions
Temperature: 15 degrees - 100 degrees, needs protection from colder winters and always keep very wet when hot
Dormancy: All Sarracenia require a winter dormancy starting in October and ending in February. Many of the pitchers will turn brown and die back during this time. Leave them outdoors in full sun, sitting in distilled water during this period. If you live in an area that snows; over winter them indoors on a sunny windowsill in an unheated room or garage. Still sitting in full sun and distilled water.
Soil: Plant comes potted in a custom mix of four parts peat moss to one part perlite.
