Sarracenia


Recommended Posts

Just started on keeping carnivorous plants last year and got myself a Sarracenia I think is a smoorii. Anyway I cut it down over the winter and keeped it in my unheated greenhouse. Now I am really pleased it it as 2 flowers and growing nicely. Such an unusual flower. I will not be going to try and grow any from the seeds I am quit happy with the plant and flowers. I may get another one and see if next year I can get that to flower to.

All the best to you all Les

Well done on getting it to flower in your first year. Sarracenia do not self-pollinate so unless you've got insects around you'll have to pollinate it yourself to get any seed. Seed pods take a while to mature so there wouldn't be any seeds until at least September/October time.

To me your plants looks as if it needs more light so make sure it's in your brightest window.

I will not bother with seeds, just enjoy the flowers and plant itself. It as been in the greenhouse since last summer and is back in there now. I just brought it in to take the photo's and show my wife how nice the flower is.
