Sarracenia flava v. rugelli is the classic color form of Sarracenia flava. The vibrant, chartreuse pitchers are punctuated by a dark blotch at the throat. The dark red blotch starts off as a thin, red line on seedlings and develops at maturity.
'Bob Hanrahan', which was used to breed these, is the best rugelli in cultivation! The second photo is of our 'Bob Hanrahan'.
Sun: Full sun outdoors
Water: Always sitting in at least two inches of distilled or purified water
Temperature: 20 degrees - 80 degrees, can even take temperatures from freezing to 100 degrees but only for short periods
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.
