Sarracenia Citron EX

(5 reviews)

What a showstopper! The Citron EX has enormous, stout red pitchers with gigantic, wavy, white and red hoods. Everyone who visits the nursery always stops to admire this beauty. However, patience is required when growing this plant because it grows exceedingly slowly. If you're patient enough, you may see pitchers approach 16 inches tall.

Type of Plant: Outdoor perennial for container growing.
Height: Up to 16 inches.
Sunlight: Full sun during the growing season.
Water: Low-mineral water (50 ppm or less).
Soil: Equal parts peat moss and perlite only.
Winter: Dormant. Minimal protection in USDA zones 7-9. Mulch in colder regions.

    read many great reviews of this vendor on Garden Watchdog, and have seen their plants at various shows. So i felt great to receive a plump healthy [lant that is settling in nicely. I do have a question about another plant I purchased at a show about 4 years ago, but I will email with that.
