Sarracenia x stevensii is an attractive hybrid selected for its numerous, tall, slender, reddish-pink pitchers. The pitchers are crowned by pink frilly hoods patterned with intricate purple veins. Light shines through these window-like hoods, attracting unsuspecting insects to plunge to their deaths in the soup of digestive juices contained within the base of each funnel. This Sarracenia makes an unusual specimen for a greenhouse, conservatory or windowsill and an ideal gift for the botanically curious. Maximum height and spread: 60cm (24in).

1 x 12.5cm Potted Plant (20cm Tall) (KF3497)

Grow Sarracenia in bright light, with around 6 hours of full sun per day. They require a frost free position such as a cool conservatory, porch, or bright room indoors with a temperature of 15C (60F) – 32C (90F).

Sarracenia will need permanently moist (but not soggy) soil. This is best achieved by regular watering in a water tray throughout the growing season - avoid watering from above. Always use rainwater or distilled water, as carnivorous plants are particularly sensitive to the chemicals contained in tap water. Sarracenia do not need feeding - they will catch all of the food that they need themselves.

In autumn, Sarracenia become dormant and the pitchers begin to die back. These can be trimmed away as they die. The compost should be kept just moist throughout the winter. Resume watering, when plants start into growth again. During winter these plants require a temperature of around 5C (32F).
