(26 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 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.

    Love, love, love the Sarracenia! Thank you for taking the time to pack my plants. It shows Sarracena Northwest knows what they are doing. Had my bug bat for a month and it is filled with bugs, looking spooky as ever. I placed x bug bat next to my sun dew and both are catching bugs and lots of sun in WA.
