Europe made acquaintance of this elegant carnivorous plant in 1640, when it was introduced in England and called purpurea because of the purple colour of its flowers. Its pitchers, in other words the conical leaves used to trap insects, have a delicate light green colour which is enriched by red streaks spread all over the leaf surface as tongues of fire. This can be used an effective scenic effect which, in addition to capture insects, will capture the attention of your guests too. Sarracenia loves being cultivated outdoor to decorate terraces or gardens with small peat bogs, inside which it thrives. The direct sun allows the plant to further intensify its colours, especially in moist environments: place it in a flowerpot saucer with some water, avoiding the calcareous one and using only rainwater or purified water. Spray the leaves once in awhile, as this will maintain a good moisture level around the plant. As Sarracenia is a carnivorous species, it needs no fertiliser; as to the climate, the plant suffers at temperatures higher than 37°C, while during the winter vegetative rest, it should never be kept at temperatures lower than zero.
