We offer a beautiful and vigorous clone of the classic pitcher plant Sarracenia minor.
S. minor is immediately recognizable for it's hooded and domed pitcher as well as the striking translucent patches that speckle the upper half of the pitchers back. These unique pitchers are thought to lure insects foraging into the pitcher mouth, which is otherwise very dark because the downward pointed lid covers the pitcher opening. After feeding on the nectaries around the pitcher opening insects are drawn towards the bright light passing through the translucent sections of the pitcher during the day and fall into the pitcher as they move toward the light. With it's truly unique and sophisticated trapping strategy, S. minor is a must have for any collection!
Plants for sale are a beautiful S. minor clone whose upper pitchers turn a deep red in full sun beautifully contrasted by the many translucent white "windows".
