Size and packing method: You will receive a bare root plant 2-4 inches tall, carefully wrapped in a damp paper towel. These plants are very young and will need some time to mature. If selecting with soil mix, you will receive two cups of our prepackaged Carnivorous Plant Soil Mix in addition to the bare root plant. This quantity of soil is roughly enough to fill one 2.5 x 2.5 x 3.5 inch square pot.

Soil: Carnivorous Plant Soil Mix, pure peat, peat-sand mix, or long-fiber sphagnum
Feeding: Feed bugs or fish food every 2-3 weeks, fertilizer such as Osmocote may be added to pitchers sparingly or Maxsea as a foliar feed may be used for plants with young pitchers
Water: Keep soil damp at all times, provide water that is low in salts and minerals such as rain or distilled water
Dormancy: Growth stops during winter and leaf edges brown, allow 3-4 months at 50°F or less, give less light and keep soil damp, clip off old leaves once dormancy is over
