Sarracenia's (pronounced sarra-SEEN-ee-a) name comes from the first person to describe the purple pitcher plant Sarracenia purpurea, Dr. Michel Sarrazin (1659-1734), botanist, zoologist & Quebec's first surgeon.
They are carnivorous bog plants consisting of pale green tubes streaked with purple each with a fringed cap. The pitchers hold water that drown the flies that they attract.
Mostly from southern USA but some further north and in Canada.
They need very bright light and temperatures of 15° to 32°C (60° - 90°F) and extremely high humidity. Plant in a water-holding medium, which is kept wet at all times, ideally with long fibred sphagnum moss added. Always use soft water (ideally rainwater).
