(27 reviews)
Bug Bat is part of the Sarracenia Bug Series that was developed by Larry Mellichamp at the University of North Carolina. This hybrid has stout copper-red traps. The speckling of light windows on the back of the traps makes them glow in the morning and evening. Pitchers feature a large, pointed hood over a gullet of a mouth. A vigorous grower that clumps readily and can get quite large in just a few seasons.

    The plant came quickly in perfect condition. The pitchers look amazing. Most of the day they look like they're glowing. Definitely worth it.

    This plant came well packed and had a dozen or so pitchers. It is a very healthy 2-3 year old. I’ve kept it under grow lights and it has gotten amazing color. So happy.

    Gorgeous plant!!

    Posted by Rosanne Becker on August 5, 2020

    This plant arrived healthy and beautiful. It grows pitchers faster than I can keep up with. In the 6 weeks I've had it, it has more than doubled in size. A wonderful addition to my collection.
