The Sarracenia x Maroon Trumpet Pitcher Carnivorous Plant's unique appearance plant employs the same trapping mechanism as Darlingtonia californica, using a small entrance in the pitcher mouth, which prey goes through in search of more nectar that was produced by the plant on the rim of the pitcher mouth. The prey is then confused by light shining through what appear to be false exits (or "windows") and crawls toward the brighter area down into the pitcher. Criss-crossed downward-facing hairs densely line the interior of the pitcher, forcing the prey further into the pitcher to an area where digestive enzymes such as proteases are prevalent in the liquid. The pitchers of the parrot pitcher plant do not function as pitfall traps like those of its relatives. Instead, this species utilizes the "lobster trap" method of prey capture. Lured to its pitchers by their bright colors, insects gradually explore the traps. This plant can grow in soggy soil with the water level in the saucer as deep as 1/2 the pot, but most carnivorous plants prefer damp to wet soil, so keep the water at about 1/4 inch and refill as soon as it is nearly gone. Water from below, by adding water to the tray, rather than watering the plant.

This plant comes in a 3" nursery pot.

If your plant needs added humidity our Plant Mister would make a perfect addition to your plant shelf for both function and beauty.

my first experience buying plants online

i’ve only recently taken an interest in plants (carnivorous plants especially) and verdant lyfe has been so helpful! i bought a 120 hour heating pack as well as a thermal bag because i live in michigan and it’s very cold here. as you can see, my plant arrived in a healthy condition! i couldn’t be happier and i can’t wait to purchase another beautiful plant from this company. 💓
