Care Instructions for the Pitcher Plant

  • Potting: Sarracenia hates contact with minerals, choose a pot that’s got good drainage and avoid terracotta or clay pots, which can leach minerals into the soil. Pot size; 10 – 15cm for small plants, 15 – 25cm for larger plants.
  • Sunlight: Pitcher Plants love bright, indirect sunlight. Pick a location that gets good morning or evening sunlight.
  • Soil: Carnivorous plant potting mix provides the ideal combination of well-draining, mineral and nutrient-free soil that’s perfect for Pitcher Plants. There’s no need to fertilise as the clever Sarracenia produces its own minerals and nutrients, and adding fertiliser can be harmful.
  • Watering: Keep the soil continually moist by watering often. If your plant is left outside or near a window, check on it regularly to make sure the soil isn’t drying out. Try not to let the pot sit in water for too long as this can cause root rot.
  • Feeding: If left outside, Sarracenia will happily trap enough passing bugs to keep itself well fed. If your plant lives indoors you can supplement its diet by dropping a live or dried cricket or mealworm (available at pet shops) into each cup, once or twice a month.
