Sarracenia ( x 'Judith Hindle' ) x rubra ssp. jonesii (S-SG) Potted
Sarracenia x 'Judith Hindle' is one of the most beautiful cultivars yet produced! It has compact pitchers topped with a wildly undulating hood. They start out green, dappled in whites and yellows and as they age they transform to a deep, dark red. Sarracenia rubra ssp. jonesii is known for it's handsome pitchers which are narrow, deeply veined and an electric green. This seed grown CalCarn hybrid should be very interesting!
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.
Soil: Plant comes potted in a custom mix of four parts peat moss to one part perlite.
