Description
A well-known carnivorous plant which makes a fascinating houseplant. Commonly known as the Pitcher Plant, Sarracenia leucophylla is an extremely attractive species with beautiful white-topped pitchers that are heavily veined with crimson red. Despite their beauty, these colourful vases are lethal to unsuspecting insects who are drawn to the promise of nectar. Once trapped within the vase, they are slowly digested by the plant. These intriguing plants do require specific care to thrive, but the effort is well worth it, and they make an absorbing conversation piece. Height and spread: 60cm (24").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Please note: Some houseplants are toxic or harmful to pets if ingested. If you believe your pet has consumed a poisonous plant then seek veterinary attention immediately. Take a sample of the plant with you.

How to Grow
Grow Sarracenia in bright light, with around 6 hours of full sun per day. They require a frost free position such as a cool conservatory, porch, or bright room indoors with a temperature of 15C (60F) – 32C (90F).
More Info

Sarracenia will need permanently moist (but not soggy) soil. This is best achieved by regular watering in a water tray throughout the growing season - avoid watering from above. Always use rainwater or distilled water, as carnivorous plants are particularly sensitive to the chemicals contained in tap water. Sarracenia do not need feeding - they will catch all of the food that they need themselves.

In autumn, Sarracenia become dormant and the pitchers begin to die back. These can be trimmed away as they die. The compost should be kept just moist throughout the winter. Resume watering, when plants start into growth again. During winter these plants require a temperature of around 5C (32F).
