Sarracenia are commonly known as Pitcher Plants or Trumpet Pitchers is a genus of carnivorous plants indigenous to the eastern seaboard of the United States and southeastern Canada. They are more forgiving of poor treatment than their fellow Venus Flytrap cousin, and can be long-lived and easy care houseplants to grow and keep looking attractive from one year to the next.

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.

As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.

Pro tips

Keep your plant in a warm room and water it with distilled or rain water. Chemicals in our tap water can often burn the pitchers. If you are growing the plant where it cannot catch insects for long periods, you can add an occasional small insect such as a fruit fly or fungus gnat.

Care Guide

How to take care of Sarracenia Pitcher Plant

They enjoy some direct sun, but they'll also do well in bright, indirect light. It is best to place this plant somewhere where it will receive some nice morning sun, or a couple hours of afternoon sun, and then indirect light the rest of the day.

They will do best in bright light. A nice bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that is right next to a window, either with or without blinds, depending on if the plant can handle sun. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

They like the soil to stay consistently moist, but not soaking wet. Give them water whenever just the surface of the soil is starting to get dry. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

They can live in any average home humidity condition and are fairly hardy unless you have a very dry home or place your plant in excessively dry air such as above a radiator.

You can feel comfortable having this plant around your home in the potential case where your pet feels like nibbling on it. However, we typically recommend keeping your pets from eating any of your houseplants.

Introducing the Sarracenia Pitcher Plant, a fascinating and alluring carnivorous plant that teaches us the importance of patience, adaptability, and the beauty of nature's intricate designs.

The Sarracenia Pitcher Plant, native to North America, is known for its striking, tubular leaves, which form elegant, trumpet-shaped pitchers. These unique structures lure and capture insects, providing the plant with essential nutrients. The Sarracenia's captivating adaptation serves as a reminder of the power of patience and the importance of resourcefulness in a challenging world.

To help your Sarracenia flourish, provide it with bright, direct or indirect sunlight, which will encourage the development of vibrant colours and intricate patterns on the pitchers. This stunning plant demonstrates how adapting to specific conditions can lead to innovative solutions and a greater appreciation of the natural world.

When it comes to watering, the Sarracenia Pitcher Plant prefers moist, well-draining soil and requires distilled water or rainwater, as tap water can be harmful due to its mineral content. This need for pure water serves as a reminder of the importance of being mindful of the resources we consume and the impact they have on our well-being.

As your Sarracenia grows, it will continue to produce new pitchers, each one more intriguing and beautiful than the last. Embrace the lessons of patience and adaptability that this plant provides, as it silently captures its prey and thrives in its unique environment.

Welcome the Sarracenia Pitcher Plant into your home, and let it inspire you with its symbolism of patience, adaptability, and the enchanting beauty of nature's designs. It's not just a plant; it's a living testament to the resilience and creativity of life, reminding us that we too can adapt and grow, no matter the obstacles we face.
