Sarracenia Apache Green

Back in stock: Growing - more than 12 weeks
Out of stock
Bugs beware! These short fat traps will eat you, dissolving your scaly bodies in their digestive jui.... excuse us. A very lovely and unusual wetland plant with the bonus of aquilegia-like flowers on long stems in spring. They like wet acidic soils, hot sunny summers and cold winters.

Sarracenia 'Apache Green' - pitcher plant
DESCRIPTION: Carnivorous plant growing in a low clumping rosette of upright fat yellow-green tubes lightly veined with red. The colour deepens in autumn. The tubes prevent insects which fall in, getting out.
USES: Wetland and bog plant for cool-winter areas; interesting and unusual indoor plant.
PLANTING:  Plant in acid soil, ideally equal parts sphagnum moss or peat moss, horticultural sand, and perlite; called Pocosin in nature. Any potting mix needs to be extremely low in phosphorus and nitrogen so don't fertilise these plants. Plants need a cool winter, at least one month of low-single digit temperatures, and can survive snow and ice.
CARE: Keep the soil wet through the growing seasons, the easiest way is to sit the pot in a saucer of rainwater. In mid-autumn, drain the saucer and keep the soil damp until spring, to give the plant a rest.
HEIGHT & WIDTH: 10 - 20cm H x 1m across in colonies
PLEASE NOTE: Supplied as 'plugs', slightly smaller than our usual tubestock but with a healthy root system ready for planting or potting on.
