Sarracenia alata x minor

(35 reviews)

One of the most vigorous crosses we have, this plant grows tall like with white spots and a slightly cowled lid. In late spring and early summer, the traps develop a wonderful orange hue, which mellow to green by mid-summer. As a bonus, it retains most of its pitchers during the winter months. Plants can become quite large, dividing readily and growing quickly. Foliage is uniform and substantial, typically reaching 12-16 inches tall . A great plant for the first-time grower!

Type of Plant: Outdoor perennial for container growing.
Height: 12-16 inches.
Sunlight: Full sun during the growing season.
Water: Low-mineral water (50 ppm or less).
Soil: Equal parts peat moss and perlite only.
Winter: Dormant. Minimal protection in USDA zones 7-9. Mulch in colder regions.

• Mature division in its second growing season. (NOT a new division.)
• Acclimated for outdoor growing.
• Shipped in a 4-inch pot. Care instructions are included.

    Arrived in great shape. The plant has been thriving so far, a few new leaves have grown as summer is closing out in NC.

    slow but most likely my fault

    Posted by Robie Osborne on July 15, 2020

    Got it healthy and erect. Packaging was amazing! I put it out in the sun the day I got it and I think it was too much too soon. Pitchers flopped over. Cut a couple of them off and saved the ones that tried to bounce back. Taking a while but new little pitchers are growing! Very healthy plant, just a rough start from me lol

    The shipping took a little longer than I expected but the plant was packaged wonderfully and it arrived in excellent condition even in the middle of a Texas summer.

    Can't wait for spring

    Posted by Unknown on December 31, 2018

    We're mid-dormancy at the moment but the pitchers retained from the last growing season are gorgeous and robust, so I know there will be more to come in springtime!
