Sarracenia purpurea purpurea f. heterophylla $30.00 $16.00

Sarracenia purpurea purpurea f. heterophylla, the anthocyanin free (lacking the red pigment) is a bright (even fluorescent!) green color, which is very striking in appearance. Rare in its native habitat, this form of S. purpurea occurs from the northeastern US into Ontario and Newfoundland. We grow these in either standard CP potting mix of 50:50 sand:peat, or 40:60 fine perlite:peat, with a handful of orchid bark. Water by sitting in a tray of pure water, and never let it become dry. Give these at least several hours of full sun each day, rarely they may need some protection from drying out in extreme heat.

Dormancy notice: Usually dormancy lasts roughly November through March.

We grow all our Sarracenia outdoors here in the greater Seattle area. This ensures that they will experience a seasonal dormancy each year, a requirement for healthy plants. Please be aware that many, if not all the pitchers will be dead or dying, and they will begin to look their best again in the spring. When pitchers do form during dormancy, they are commonly of the form known as phyllodia, thin and misshapen. However, dormancy is the best time of the year to ship or repot these plants without stress.
