More info

This carnivorous plant is commonly known as "Barbapapa", because its pitchers (in other words, the peculiar tubular-shaped leaves) remind of the characters of the famous animated cartoon. The variety Barba is distinguished from the other species of Sarracenie because of its bright green colour, with brown-purple streaks on the top part of its tubercles. The preys are lured by the colour and secretions of the pitchers; once inside the leaves, they become trapped, and subsequently drown and are digested by the enzymes secreted by the plant itself. In this way, the plant receives its supply of nutrients, especially nitrogen, and needs no artificial fertilization. The plant blooms once a year, producing pretty five-petalled brown flowers. Perennial and evergreen, it tolerates temperatures between 0 and 30°C and can be grown easily even by the less expert. As it lives in the marshy areas of the eastern part of the United States, Sarracenia Barba needs the direct sunlight and high humidity levels, in order to grow as healthy and luxuriant plant.
