The term Feist Dog originates from the rural regions of the southern United States and refers to small, mixed-breed hunting dogs. We use that term at the nursery for any Sarracenia with unknown parentage, particularly those from open-field pollination. Many fine specimens that we have offered over the years have come from this sort of random pollination. Because they were first grown from seed, each one is a unique specimen. Each Feist Dog Sarracenia has a personality unique to its own!

Photos are for descriptive purposes. Size, shape, and color will vary considerably. All selection is done randomly.

    Little carnivores

    I bought 6 of these little guys and I am very happy with them. They all have their differences and you can get an idea of what is in the mix but then ag you can’t. They seem happy since they do appear to be growing and signs of new growth are present. I love these little guys.

    The plants arrived in great condition.I followed the instructions as to planting them up and placing the pots is the shallow end of a small pond. Alls well so far!

    I planted 3 4” pots together in one 8” pot as I recited in pest moss and vermiculite. . They are in about 2” of water at the shallow end of a small pond in full sun. All seems well!

    It was good about two weeks but suddenly fell down and dead

    Posted by tengfang wu on July 17, 2022

    I don’t know what it is going on but I will try to find out *** RESPONSE BY SARRACENIA NORTHWEST *** I'm sorry the plant didn't grow as you had expected! It's unusual for a plant to suddenly fall down and die. I reviewed my messages, and I didn't see any from you regarding this issue. We would love to help you figure out what happened. Please send us a message through Ask The Growers. You can find the link in the Care Info section. We look forward to hearing from you.

    Feist Dog Hybrid - Leucophylla Features

    Posted by James Baker on October 13, 2021

    My plant arrived very quickly and was well packaged. I don't think it could have been in any better shape if I'd picked it up in person. The specimen itself was very robust with a thick crown and a couple of new growth points already. It had three large (14" tall) pitchers open, with one developing pitcher on the way up. The pitchers on my Feist Dog are predominantly green with white speckling around the mouth and hood, and some burgundy veining and splotches inside the hood. The pitcher and mouth shape look very much like Sarracenia leucophylla, but the hood takes on a more upward attitude, and is less wavy. I moved my plant into a much larger pot right away so it would be less vulnerable to cat attacks and have a larger water reservoir. The pitcher that was developing during shipping became stunted for some reason, and never finished developing. That didn't prevent my plant from producing three more gorgeous new pitchers in the month since I re-potted it. Two of them have opened nicely at the time of this review, with more on the way. The newest pitchers lack the burgundy coloration that is present on the original pitchers, but I admittedly have the plant receiving only 4-5 hours of direct sun. Overall, I was very happy to round out my monthly giveaway prize selection with this vigorous Sarracenia leucophylla stand-in.
