Sarracenia x 'Scarlet Belle' Pitcher Plant-

$9.99

Quantity Available: 10

Sarracenia x 'Scarlet Belle' Pitcher Plant is a cultivar of temperate pitcher plant. Temperate Pitcher Plants are native to bogs and fens of the eastern United States. Sarracenia x 'Scarlet Belle' Pitcher Plant makes a fascinating addition to any temperate vivarium, but Josh's Frogs does not recommend keeping Sarracenia x 'Scarlet Belle' Pitcher Plant with animals. Animals will disturb the plant, and these repeated disturbances wille eventually lead to the demise of Sarracenia x 'Scarlet Belle' Pitcher Plant. Sarracenia x 'Scarlet Belle' Pitcher Plant also requires a winter dormancy period to thrive.

Pitcher plants are named for their pitcher-shaped leaves, which contain nectar around the rim and attract insects. Careless insects slip into the trap, and eventually die. As they break down, nutrients from the insects are absorbed through the pitcher plant's leaves. This is an adaptation to the nutrient poor soil conditions pitcher plants inhabit in the wild.

Sarracenia x 'Scarlet Belle' Pitcher Plant will grow approximately 10-12" across in a vivarium over time, and makes a great foreground plant. Sarracenia x 'Scarlet Belle' Pitcher Plant should be planted in the front or middle areas of a naturalistic vivarium. Sarracenia x 'Scarlet Belle' Pitcher Plant also makes a great plant for a container garden.

Sarracenia x 'Scarlet Belle' Pitcher Plant has moderate to high water needs. Sarracenia x 'Scarlet Belle' Pitcher Plant does not appreciate saturated soil, but do not let it dry out! Provide moderate to high light levels for Sarracenia x 'Scarlet Belle' Pitcher Plant. More intense light will encourage your Sarracenia x 'Scarlet Belle' Pitcher Plant to grow in a smaller, more bushy manner. Sarracenia x 'Scarlet Belle' Pitcher Plant tends to sprawl horizontally to a width of about 10-12", but may get larger over time. Sarracenia x 'Scarlet Belle' Pitcher Plant does not require air circulation. In a vivarium, Sarracenia x 'Scarlet Belle' Pitcher Plant is best used as a foreground plant. Like all carnivorous plants, provide nutrient poor soil, such as a sand and peat mix. Sarracenia x 'Scarlet Belle' Pitcher Plant will also do quite well in stright sphagnum moss.
