Sarracenia flava var. cuprea Potted

$ 24.99

This is a seed-grown cross of two outstanding Sarracenia flava. Sarracenia flava "red form" is a charming red variation of Sarracenia flava. Sarracenia flava v. cuprea "Bill Hoyer" is a childhood plant from our friend Bill Hoyer.  It is probably our very best cuprea variety in the collection.  Lots of other cupreas can start out coppery on top but fade over the summer, but this extremely vigorous clone has a beautiful, solid, coppery colored lid all summer long!

The combination of these two plants has created a stunning cuprea with tall, slender, red pitchers and deeply coppery lids with green lips!

Care Instructions
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.
