Description

The Sarracenia can often be found in the bogs of North America and Europe. It multiplies in different cultivars.

Here is the Sarracenia Cobra! It will attract wasps and flies with its nectar and colors. Some sarracenias have been used to control the Asian hornet in Europe.

This plant requires a period of dormancy during the winter. It will survive outdoors all summer long and can tolerate freezing weather with adequate protection.

Cultivation advice:

Demineralized water (rain, water from a dehumidifier / air conditioning, reverse osmosis etc.)
Lots of sunlight / LED or CFL light (color 6400 Kelvin)
Soil: 50% peat moss, 50% perlite.

In order to optimize its growth and longevity, this plant must go dormant for 3-4 months per year.

How to cause dormancy?

Pretty simple, you just have to leave it outside under a bell, it will start to grow again in the spring.

Otherwise, if you want to control dormancy, you just have to place the plant in a cool place between -10 and 10 ° C and give it deionized water in a very limited way.

You must start to cause dormancy after 2 to 3 years of the plant’s life. This will allow him to take a rest and make bigger traps next spring!
