General Description
 
Bug Bat is a cultivar of a natural hybrid - Sarracenia rubra x minor. It is one of the most popular Sarracenia we have, next to Judith Hindle. An excellent selection of an uncommon cross, the copper-red traps are extremely stout at full size. The speckling of light windows on the back of the traps makes them glow in the morning and evening. Pitchers feature a large, pointed hood over a gullet of a mouth. A vigorous grower that clumps readily and can get quite large in just a few seasons.

Great plant with lots of leaves July 8, 2018
Reviewer: Quentin from Bethesda, MD United States  
The plant arrived in great shape with lots of pitchers. It's already sprouting new ones as well. This is a clear winner and a cheap introduction into pitcher plants.

Its been about a month now and my pitcher plant has grown many little pitchers. Its exciting seeing the change in color of the pitchers as they mature.
