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!

    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!

    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.
