This is a hybrid between Sarracenia leucophylla and Sarracenia psittacina. This particular cultivar was bred by long-time friend to California Carnivores, Bob Hanrahan. It has amazing dark red coloration and has inherited the best of both its parents. 'Scarlett Belle' is one of Kate's personal favorite pitcher plants and she recommends it to all Sarracenia lovers!
What we love about 'Scarlett Belle':
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.
