More info

Smoorii is a carnivorous plant which obtains the nitrogen necessary to its growth from the decomposition of little insects, which it captures by luring them inside the cup formed by its leaves, which in turn are bright green and streaked by dark claret shades. Its particular shape and colour will give your house a fascinating and exotic touch, and the more Sarracenia will be exposed to the sun, the brighter the colour of its leaves will be. However, considering that the plant develops in moist and swampy environments, it is better to make sure that the soil in the pot is always moist. As to the substrate, Sarracenia Smoorii prefers simple peat and dislikes nursery, which contains fertilizers that are potentially harmful for the plant. The blooming phase takes place in spring and summer, producing yellow or red flowers with long and undulated petals, while in winter the plant enters into its vegetative period and its rhizomes remains dormant until the next spring. For watering, use rainwater or, in any case, one with a low content of limescale, which might be harmful for the plant. Sarracenia Smoorii became famous in Europe after the discovery of America, and its name was first used by Michel Sarrazin, the father of the Canadian botany, at the end of the XVII century.
