This tropical carnivorous plant is popular for its large pitchers that increase in size as the plant matures. Pitcher Plants attract their prey with an intoxicating fragrance, vibrant colors, and sweet nectar. The insect flies inside of the pitcher and begins to drown in a slick walled vat filled with sticky, acidic liquid. The pitchers hold bacteria that helps the plant digest the bug and its nutrients.
☀ ☀ Light :
Thrives in bright indirect to direct sunlight.
Prefers moist soil. We recommend bottom watering with filtered or distilled water. To bottom water, place the bottom of the pot in a bowl or tray of water. Let the plant absorb for approximately 30 minutes, then give the pot a good shake to remove excess water.
+ Plant Tip :
This plant does not need fertilizer. Pitcher Plants collect their nutrients from the decomposing insects in its pitcher. If your plant isn’t catching any bugs, we recommend purchasing bugs at your local pet store and feeding your plant about once every three weeks.
