Arrived in perfect condition and potted easily as shown in videos. Grows like corn in Kansas summer. I have 4 flowers now. The videos are a huge help on doing what is correct for the plants.

Bare root rhizomes are shipped without pots or soil. They are best suited for growers who understand the seasonal growth cycle of Sarracenia. Please read the FAQ below for details.
FAQ about Bare Root Sarracenia Rhizomes
Why purchase recent divisions in bulk?
You save money. A lot of money.
These rhizomes are recent divisions of very large mother plants in our collection. When dividing plants, we trim off excess rhizomes and roots, so they will need time to recover. They will look their best during their second or third growing season after division. If you're willing to care for recently divided rhizomes during their recovery phase, you can save a lot of money!
Bare root rhizomes are availbable December-February only.
Which varieties are included?
Bulk plants are randomly selected from an undisclosed batch of overstocked plants, discontinued plants, and plants that lost their labels. When rhizomes are divided and trimmed, they are placed into a large bin with other rhizomes. All selections are done randomly. Consider it like a grab bag. The fun is seeing what pops up!
How are sizes gauged?
With bulk plants, we don't bother sorting plants by size. Recent divisions are trimmed down to the growing point. Essentially, they have smaller rhizomes and fewer roots than an established plant. Expect your rhizomes to fit appropriately in 2-inch, 3-inch, and 4-inch pots. Selection is done randomly.
How many rhizomes are in each pack?
We guarantee only the weight of each 2-ounce pack. Rhizomes will vary in size, depending on variety and the way they break off from the mother plant. Some packs have only two rhizomes because they're larger and weigh more. Others might have as many as 8 because they're much smaller and have fewer roots. However, the weight of each pack is the same - 2 ounces.
Packs are selected randomly when orders are fulfilled. Please view photos above for examples of variability of these 2-ounce packs. (Banana is for scale and not included.)
What will I need when my Sarracenia arrive?
• Carnivorous plant soil mix (equal parts peat moss and perlite)
• Plastic pots of the appropriate size

Are instructions included?
Yes, you will receive instructions on how to pot and care for your rhizomes. You can also watch our YouTube video.
How large will the pitchers grow?
The natural growing season for Sarracenia is April - September. When actively growing, the size of the pitcher will depend on the variety and initial size of the division.
Unlabeled packs of rhizomes are selected from a random mix of Sarracernias. Some are tall and slender. Others are short and stout.
With recently divided rhizomes, you can expect to see their full potential size in 2-3 growing seasons.
Can you make sure I don't receive any duplicates?
Rhizomes are prepackaged and randomly selected from a large bin of freshly divided rhizomes. Duplication is unavoidable and will likely occur.
I'm not ready to pot them up. Can I wait?
For best results, pot them immediately upon arrival. If you need to delay potting, spray your rhizomes with a sulur-based fungicide as directed by the manufacturer. Place the rhizomes back into the plastic bag and store them in your refrigerator where they can be kept there for 6-8 weeks. Check on them periodically for mold and fungus. Spray with additional sulfur-based fungicide as needed.
Can you hold rhizomes for me to ship later?
Because bare root rhizomes are perishable, we need to ship them within 1 week of your order.
Do you guarantee that your rhizomes will grow for me?
We guarantee plants for 30 days as long as you follow the instructions provided with your plants. A healthy rhizome will be firm with supple roots and white inner flesh. Beyond the 30-day period, you assume all responsibility for the rhizomes' health and growth. If you're an experienced grower and willing to assume the majority of the risk, bare root rhizomes can be a great bargain.
While we do not guarantee how you may interpret or implement our instructions, we are available to answer your questions. Please visit the Ask The Growers page or the 30-Day Guarantee page for more information.
NOTE: If you are new to growing Sarracenia, consider purchasing an established potted plant instead. You will have better success learning about their seasonal growth habits and care when starting off with established potted plants rather than bare root rhizomes.
The rhizomes came well packed and healthy.
2 small ones came and look good, I can't wait to see them grow. They arrived fast and well packaged
This isnâ€™t my first purchase of bare root plants from Sarracenia NW. This is a great deal for a variety of plants. I suspect some of these Iâ€™ll discover I already have, but hopefully some will be new to me!
The bulk roots by weight was a good idea. That way even the smaller Rubra-ish rhizomes seem like a great deal. When it was number of rhizomes these small ones did not seem like a deal. This was a good mix of a few large and mostly medium and small rhizomes. The bare rhizomes were healthy and are starting to send up new growth. Can't wait to see what random varieties are in this batch.
So many bare root sarracenia were in this order! More than I expected. I was very pleased. I would absolutely order again. Healthy plants, excellent packing, quick shipping. I absolutely recommend ordering from sarracenia northwest!
ALL THE ROOTS I RECEIVED ARE PLANTED AND SHOWING GROWTH.WAS DEFINITELY A GREAT BULK BUY IF YOU WERE LOOKING FOR A LOT OF PLANTS AT ONCE
Package was received in excellent condition and included helpful growing tips. The sarracenia grew wonderfully during its first season, as I purchased them in 2018. Great deal and wonderful addition to my carnivorous plant family!
These little guys reached me quickly in great shape, and started doing their thing as soon as i got them into some pots! Still excited to watch as they continue to grow and try to figure out what varieties they might be...
I appreciate the great communication. The plants were well packaged/protected, nice size, AND...I received six instead of five. Several have already started to send out short shoots in spite of the fact their pots are outside and our last frost date is not until May 10th ( they are covered at night ). Thank you...I will buy purchase from you again !!!
