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.

5 of 5 Boss Bug Bat September 13, 2020
Reviewer: Steely Phil from Raleigh, NC United States  
This plant came well packed and had a dozen or so pitchers. It is a very healthy 2-3 year old. I’ve kept it under grow lights and it has gotten amazing color. So happy.

5 of 5 Gorgeous plant!! August 5, 2020
Reviewer: Rosanne Becker from Mount Carmel , PA United States  
This plant arrived healthy and beautiful. It grows pitchers faster than I can keep up with. In the 6 weeks I've had it, it has more than doubled in size. A wonderful addition to my collection.
