I write a lot about Venus fly traps because they are the most widely recognized carnivorous plant for so many, but there’s a special place in my heart for Sarracenia (North American pitcher plants). These are often cultivated in the exact same conditions as Venus fly traps. Essentially anything I write about Venus fly traps can also be applied to Sarracenia.
Naturally, this means it’s time for pitcher plant dormancy too. Like tree leaves changing colors with the seasons, Sarracenia pitchers turn a gorgeous array of colors before they rest for the winter. Yes, falling leaves are beautiful but these are my kind of autumn colors! The carnivorous kind. 😉 Lots of photos ahead, hope you enjoy them! These are of my Sarracenia Flava “Cuprea” or Coppertop.
I hope all of you are enjoying a cozy, colorful autumn as well! Have an excellent weekend. 😀
