Sarracenia leucophylla 'Red & White' x minor v. okefenokeensis Bare-Root
Sarracenia leucophylla 'Red & White' x minor v. okefenokeensis is a cross that Peter did almost twenty years ago. They are basically Sarracenia x excellens on steroids! Mature pitchers can be almost 2 feet tall and they still have all the bright reds and lacey light windows of traditional Sarracenia x excellens. These are divisions from plants from the California Carnivores collection.
Please note that these ship bare-rooted and with pitchers cut back. They will need to be potted back upon receipt.
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.
