Plant Experience

Because Sarracenia originate from bogs which have very little compost, they have adapted to catching bugs as fertilizer. Does this mean that u have to feed your plants bugs? No, as your plants can catch them by themselves. The plants are very voracious, and will consume large quantities of insects.

Sarracenia require very pure water. Use only rainwater, distilled water or reverse osmosis water. Always keep your Sarracenia moist. One way to accomplish this is to water thoroughly from the top or by placing the pot in a tray of water and allowing water to soak into the medium from the bottom through the drainage hole. Sarracenia can be kept wet, but it's still not a good idea to keep them too wet, especially during dormancy. When Sarracenia are very wet, they should also be warm and in the sun. Wet and cold is unhealthy and can cause fungal infections, rot and even death.
