Sarracenia Velvet, an intriguing hybrid in the carnivorous plant world, is known for its distinctive, lush, red-black, velvety pitchers. It produces elegantly curved tubular leaves that have evolved into efficient insect traps. This hybrid is admired for its dramatic colouring and distinctive form, making it a unique addition to any collection of carnivorous plants.

Care Guide

How to take care of Sarracenia Velvet

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 like a high humidity environment, give them a mist daily or as often as possible. Alternatively, you can put them around a humidifier. Although they won't die if they don't receive enough humidity, their leaves may have some dry, crunchy, or yellow edges.

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.
