Sarracenia alata x minor
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!

I was very surprised at the size and the quality on the plants I received. Definitely will be getting more plants. Keep up the great work guys. ðŸ‘
I older a plant from your are fresh no damage and the plant I buy from you are growing but I wonder Can I use grow light for carnivorous plant.
Yet another wonderfully packaged and healthy, exquisite plant. Love the colors and the features of two different genera. Since then several mature pitchers have appeared. SNW has the best and does the best (packaging, servicing, videos and advising). Anyone new to carnivorous plants is quickly educated by their team of Jacob and Jeff.
The plant arrived safe and sound, and is doing nicely next to the sundew I picked up from you a couple months ago. VERY happy!
This plant is gorgeous! Can't wait for it to wake up in the spring!
This pitcher plant arrived in a carefully packaged container and look very healthy. They are taller than I anticipated, but are beautiful and make a nice addition to my garden. I'm sure they've already caught their fair share of insects!
My plant was beautiful! Well packaged. Will definitely order again!!
A beautiful pitcher. The wasp seem to love it. I haven't seen one fall in yet.
The rhizome you sent was enormous and is growing very bright green pitchers. Extremely pleased with this plant.
Received this a month ago and the plant already has one shoot about 10" tall with another at about 6". Once it started growing, it shot up extremely fast. Hopefully it continues to do well! Shipping was great, looks like a lot of attention was put into the package. It arrived in Iowa on a 20 degree day, but had heating pads inside.
The plant has arrived in great condition, and you guys put great care in the plants, and I would order from guys again, and the plant has not suffered at all thank and happy growing
