Growing Tips

The sarracenia catches many flies, wasps, bedbugs and other large insects
Soil: Blonde acid sphagnum peat with perlite
IN SUMMER: Keep the plant exposed to the sun for many hours a day, which is essential for it to grow healthy and colourful. It does not suffer from the summer heat if the water level in the saucer is kept high.
It should never be fertilized.
IN WINTER Keep the plant outside in a sunny and wind-protected position. Just avoid prolonged frosts. You can cut dry and damaged leaves at the base. In spring it will have beautiful flowering and lots of new leaves.
To have even higher traps you can cut the flower as soon as it appears at 5 cm in height. The peat must be completely changed every two or three years.


The best water is rain or distilled or reverse osmosis.
It must be free of limestone residues and very tender and acidic.
Sarracenia loves a high water level in the saucer.
In summer the ideal level is constant up to half the vase.
In winter, a constant one or two cm will be enough but it can also tolerate total water coverage by living near the edges of streams.
It is not necessary to vaporize the plant but in the height of summer it can be refreshed with evening rain, always with low-calcareous water.
