My new plants but my Sarracenia doesn't look happy

Recommended Posts


I have just got my first two plants a Venus flytrap and a Sarracenia.

The Sarracenia has some brown at the top and some on the smaller pitchers.

I got these from a garden center so i don't believe these  plants have had the best of care. Is their any thing i can do other than sunlight and rain water?

Nice looking plants.  You've got it in one.  Sunlight and rain water.  Actually, that's two!  Both plants need to be standing in rain water about an inch or more deep.

And, from the look of them, they will both need re-potting next year.

Enjoy them.
