Sarracenia flava v. rugelli 'Bob Hanrahan' Bare-Root
Peter acquired this plant from Bob, for whom it's named, in the 80's, it was then and still is today, the very best rugelli there is! The lids of mature plants can be bigger than a mans hand stretched out. The tall pitchers are a yellow green so bright that they seem to glow in the vernal sunlight as they emerge! The only splash of red is a solid patch in the throat, common of the typical rugelli variety. Perfectly may have a thin red picotee along the front edge of the lid. The mouth of the pitcher flares wide like a trumpet and the lip has a deep cleft in the front which adds to it's regal appearance. Very limited supply of supply of large divisions.
Bare-root plants are plants that have had all of their pitchers cut back and they have been removed from the soil so you will only receive a rhizome. Have your soil ready for planting these up upon arrival! These will experience a bit more shock than potted plants so if you are new to carnivorous plants we strongly recommend that you check out our potted Sarracenia.
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.
