Carnivorous Pitcher Plant 'Catesbaei' 'Catesbaei'

Sarracenia 'Catesbaei'
Very decorative, large veined pitchers!
An unusually striking carnivorous pitcher plant with large red veins covering the pitchers (Sarracenia x catesbaei). Perfect in your home. A marsh loving plant, it can stand in drained off water to keep it continuously wet. Will also thrive in a small 'pond' on the patio, or on the edges of the pond in the garden. Will then require protection from frost if remaining outdoors. A Sarracenia is unusual because it actually traps and digests flies and other small insects with the sticky secretions on the edge of the pitchers. This is such an intriguing plant to have around!

Planting+

The trumpet pitcher plant is a unique houseplant. When planting, preferably use moss peat compost or a soil mixture that is low in nutrition. Choose a wide, shallow pot with holes in the base. Add some soil to the pot and plant the root ball of the trumpet pitcher plant at the correct depth. Fill up with soil and press firmly down. Water the trumpet pitcher plant immediately after planting.

Place the pot in a bright, warm place, but protect the plant from direct sunlight. Stand in a saucer that is always filled with water during the growing season. When the humidity is low make sure that the soil remains damp.

Care+

The trumpet pitcher plant does not like lime and prefers to be watered with rainwater or tap water that has been boiled and cooled. The soil can be constantly moist since it originally grows in swamp-like areas. Place a saucer under the pot to retain a constant supply of water.

It isn't necessary to give plant food, in fact, too much food is bad for this plant. In winter, keep it in a dry, cool area. You may notice trumpet pitcher plant lose some of its leaves, but it'll be up and running again in the spring!

Extra+

Small insects that are trapped by the trumpet pitcher plant will not be able to escape and will eventually drown in the juice that attracted them there in the first place. They will then be slowly digested by the plant over the course of about 10 days. You could treat your plant to the occasional dead fly too!
