Sarracenia Care Guide:

Sunlight : Sarracenia grow in full direct sunlight.

Substrate: They prefer a mix of peat moss and perlite 3:1 ratio. No fertilizers should be added to the mix. Alternatively a Sphagnum moss and perlite mix may be used.

Watering: Carnivorous plants thrive in clean water (distilled, rainwater, purified reverse-osmosis water). Sarracenia prefer to grow on the water tray method to mimic the swampy habitats they generally grow in. The water should always be present in the tray so that the plants never dry out.

Dormancy: Sarracenia have a winter dormancy period in which the plants don’t grow and should not be disturbed.
