General Description
 
Sarracenia minor v. okefenokeensis is the coveted giant form of the typical S. minor, from southern Georgia. It's identical to its smaller brethren, except it's twice as big! In fact, it's among the beefiest plants we grow here at the nursery and is often prominently displayed.

Like typical S. minor, Okee giants have large, coppery hoods that cover the opening of the pitchers, and the arched back of their traps are flecked with white spots that let in light to confuse potential prey within. It has an intoxicating honey-sweet aroma about it, making it one of our most charismatic plants.

Okee giants appreciate warm muggy summers and long growing seasons. In areas where summers are relatively mild, it grows a bit slowly. With the right growing conditions, you may get to enjoy bright yellow flowers in early summer.

4 of 5 Perfect plant, slow grower June 2, 2016
Reviewer: Brian Jones from Herrin, IL United States  
Plant had 2 big half developed leaves when shipped in excellent condition. Now fully open and awesome! Just noticed a new leaf developing from the crown a month later. Slow growing plant but worth the wait!
