Pitcher Plant  (Sarracenia sp.) Care

  • Use only pure water – rainwater, distilled water or RO water. Be careful of bottled water as some contain salt which will kill your Pitcher Plant
  • Keep soil moist; usually a tray or dish with 1/2 to 1.0 inch of water
  • Mist the pitcher every few days with pure water
  • Pitcher plants like a sunny or partial sunny location.
  • Soil is a mixture of 50% peat and 50% play sand. Some growers add pearlite to the mix.
  • Do not fertilize your plant. Pitcher plants will receive sufficient nutrition from the bugs they catch
  • It’s best to let your Pitcher plant go dormant from Thanksgiving to Valentines Day. Keep cool but freezing; keep moist but not too wet. A cold garage, cold window are good – 35 to 50 degrees.
  • Repot your pitcher plant every 3 to 5 years during its dormancy; use a taller pot

Pitcher plants are best in bogs but can survive in a sunny window but must have a rest period
