Thank you for sending me a very healthy rhizome. Good packaging so when arrived the items were in a pretty good condition. And most of all, thank you for giving me a special gift that I would like to buy before: a Sarracenia Oreophila. Loved it so much. God bless you all.
Sarracenia flava rubricorpora
One word - WOW! This plant is sure to capture your attention. It develops dark red tubes with contrasting yellow lids. Some folks remark how much the plant looks like a flame. Tall, almost pure red traps catch just as many flies as they turn heads. This variety of S. flava, however, grows much slower than the typical form, so you'll need to be patient. Lots of it. It also doesn't produce as many pitchers, either. While other forms produce 3 or more pitchers per growth point, this plant produces only one. Maybe two, if it's feeling generous. It also needs a minimum of 10 hours of direct sunlight to maintain its rich red color. It also helps if you have a long, hot growing season. Its best pitchers occur in mid summer.
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.

My plant came strong healthy and very tall. I was looking for a few larger plants and these fit the bill exactly for my new "bog".
Plant was shipped fast and arrived intact. Once I unboxed it and re-potted it, it really took off. I'll definitely be ordering from here again
I purchased a sarracenia a month ago and an super happy with the purchase. Great delivery time, healthy plant that's growing well, and supportive customer service that answered my questions promptly. Fully endorse, 5 stars.
Plant arrived healthy and well-packed. Growth is starting to take off!
I was very impressed with the size of the rhizome, easily twice as big as comparable vendors. They are producing great pitchers!
Recieved plant fast, Packaged with care. Plant came as a division which quickly grew two pitchers. One is about 12 inches so far while the other is about six inches. Highly recommended.
Very nice and medium sized plant. Fast shipping and well packaging. Expect for the bloom in the spring time. Thanks
The plant arrived in excellent condition. I really liked the ingenuous way the pitchers were protected by the hour glass configuration of plastic cups! I have put into a larger pot as a gift to a very close friend who likes really red Sarrs, Too bad you were out of the red minors ;=(( I will order more from you in the future Will be monitoring your website frequently. Thankd you for providing these plants and shipping them so they arrive in optimum condition.
These plants are truly spectacular, grown so well they look like wild specimens. Flawless shipping. These plants are not tiny! I only had one problem- These plants red color is so mesmerizing that they have taken the attention away from the typical Sarracenia Flavas! Thanks, SNW. Will be ordering again.
these just arrived...truly spectacular...no exaggeration! I love these! thanks
