Sarracenia x ‘Tess’ is a flava hybrid that, when grown in bright light, will darken to a deep red. These plants stay on the smaller side so they are good for the foreground in bogs. The first two photos are of mature plants, the third and fourth photos are of the plants we are shipping. These are tissue culture plants. We are so excited to offer these plants as they are rarely offered in the United States.
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.
