Without a doubt, this plant is one of the largest Sarracenia in our collection. One of our mother plant grew a clump nearly over 18 inches across and had pitchers reaching a whopping 36 inches! Extreme Green is an early season plant. It blooms early and profusely, typically by mid-April at our nursery. Its first set of spring pitchers can easily tower over the other Sarracenia in the collection. The lids on the pitchers are also enormous, over six inches long on adult plants, overhanging a wide, spouted mouth. Pitchers develop a prominent throat patch after a few weeks after opening. As an early season plant, it also goes dormant early. By August, pitchers will start to dry up , starting from the top. By late September, the plant will be fully dormant.

    Growing great! First pitcher is almost 2 feet tall, with several more coming up. Shipped in great condition. This was another great shopping experience. Sarracenia Northwest is my go to Carnivorous plant supplier. Make sure to check out their videos on their youtune channel for more great information, and if you don't have it and are new to carnivorous plants, the ebook is great.

    The plant I received had two pitchers that certainly tower over everything else in my collection, it's been a month and already its started new growth points and was able to tolerate the hot month of July flawlessly. I'm more than happy with my purchase.
