Sarracenia is North American carnivorous plant commonly referred to as the Trumpet Pitcher. This distinguishes them from the Asian pitcher plant, Nepenthes, usually called the Tropical Pitcher Plant. Trumpet pitchers have modified, tube-like leaves that arise from a basal rhizome. Insects are attracted to nectar at the tip of the pitcher and digested by enzymes when they slip and slide down the pitcher.
Care for your pitcher plant with bright light and keep the medium moist. There is no need to fertilizer your pitcher plant as they are adapted to absorb nutrients from their prey.
Please note there is significant variation in color, number and size of pitches between pieces.
