Sarracenia leucophylla are often considered  to be the most striking of the American pitcher plants. They lure prey with nectar and bright colors and fill rapidly with insects. Since the white coloration is highly visible in moonlight, it is thought this may aid in trapping nocturnal insects. Pitchers grown in summer and fall are often more robust than the first set of pitchers that form in spring.

Native region: Southeastern United States


Size and packing method: You will receive a bare root plant 3-5 inches tall, carefully wrapped in a damp paper towel. 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.

Light: Full sun
Soil: Carnivorous Plant Soil Mix, pure peat, peat-sand mix, or long-fiber sphagnum
Feeding: Feed bugs, dried bloodworms, or fish food every 2-3 weeks, fertilizer such as Osmocote may be added to pitchers sparingly

Water: Keep wet at all times, provide water that is low in salts and minerals such as rain or distilled water
Temperature: 35-95°F
Dormancy period: Growth stops during winter and leaf edges brown, allow 3-4 months at 50°F or less, give less light but keep soil wet, clip off old leaves once dormancy is over
