General Description
 

A bright sunny windowsill with several hours of direct sunlight is a fantastic location to grow many types of carnivorous plants. The Windowsill Collection has two pitcher plants and two sundews, excellent plants for first-time growers! When sold individually, these plants retail for $42.80. Get them as a collection for only $29.95!

  • Sarracenia purpurea venosa (American pitcher plant)
  • Nepenthes ventricosa (Asian pitcher plant)
  • Drosera capensis (Cape sundew, broad leaf form)
  • Drosera spatulata (Spoon-leaf sundew)
Typically we recommend growing Sarracenia outdoors as cold hardy plants, but Sarracecenia purpurea venosa is one of the few Sarracenia that will grow well in a sunny windowsill throughout the year. It remains relatively small, which is ideal for a windowsill. Just make sure the plant receives a minimum of four hours of direct, unobstructed sunlight and bright filtered sun during the rest of the day.

Nepenthes ventricosa is native native to the Philippines. It's a woody vine that produces tubby pitchers at the end of each leaf. It also grows well in a windowsill will alongside Sarracenia purpurea.

Drosera capensis and Drosera spatulata have sparking leaves that are sticky to the touch. Give these plants ample sun to maintain their dewy appearance.
Plants You Receive
Sarracenia purpurea, Drosera capensis, and Drosera spatulata are shipped in individual 3-inch pots. Nepenthes ventricosa is shipped in a 4-inch pot.

Please watch the monthly video podcast for examples of how your plant may look at this time of the year and essential growing tips for the season.

Sunlight
Partial sun. A south window with several hours of direct sunlight and bright indirect sun during the rest of the day is ideal.

Water
Use mineral-free water or water low in minerals (less than 50 parts per million).

Cold Tolerance
Tolerant of very cool temperatures, but protect from frost.

Tropical carnivorous plants in the house February 11, 2018
Reviewer: Vivian Myles Cranker from Camano Island, WA United States  
As usual, the plants came win well packed and healthy. This was my first attempt at tropical plants. I have had good success with cold-hardy plants over the last year. Sitting in a south facing window and R/O water the plants are doing well. I liked the Windowsill collection so much I bought one for my sister who lives on the east coast. This nursery is so good. they delayed the shipment for about 3 weeks due to the extremely cold weather. I will be buying more indoor plants in the future.

Reviewer: William Rodgers from Houston, TX United States  
My order was great as soon as I opened the box.  All of my plants arrived carefully packaged and healthy.  This is my first time ordering from Sarracenia Northwest and I will be back again.  Thank you Jacob for the heads up on this collection!
