Sarracenia oreophila (L-SG) Deluxe Potted
Sarracenia oreophila is nearly extinct in the wild. It looks similar to Sarracenia flava, producing most of its pitchers in spring and going dormant in late summer. Pitchers are tall and stately, usually green, but many clones have strong red venation. Please note; these plants are larger than the plant in this photo.
Due to Cites regulations we can only ship endangered species within California.
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.
