Sarracenia alata x minor

(35 reviews) Write a Review
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!

    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.
