(21 reviews) Write a Review
Bug Bat is a cultivar of a natural, yet uncommon, hybrid - Sarracenia rubra x minor. The copper-red traps are extremely stout at full size. 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.

    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.

    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.
