We’re always striving to make better and better leucophylla here, and these should be some of the best we’ve sold so far! ‘Wilkerson’s Red Rocket’ needs no introduction. The other parent is Peter’s old clone that we’ve grown for over 30 years, it always makes the largest, red, autumn pitchers of any leucophylla in our collection!
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.
