Sarracenia Bug Bat is a hybrid cross that is very hardy and grows to a foot tall with multiple pitchers, forming tight clumps as they grow. The Bug Bat produces tall upright pitchers with green and red coloration and the openings are covered with sticky nectar.

The lid of the Sarracenia folds over the mouth like a hood, hence its’ common name “hooded pitcher plant”. The hood works in tandem with another unique adaptation found on the back wall of the pitcher.

Insects finding themselves at the mouth stare straight ahead at a beautiful series of open windows. The bug is at ease and it can venture further into the plant because it seems safe. Just look at how easy it will be to exit through one of these windows. Except not. An insect flies to the windows to avoid the overturned hood that has blocked an upward escape. Surprise, those windows are actually translucent portions of the pitcher, slick and unnavigable to panicking insects. Grasp as they might, the insect slips into the pitcher opening, and is digested by the eerily happy hooded pitcher plant.

A colorful and unique addition to your carnivorous collection.

Care Instructions:

Sarracenia prefer full sun and must be kept in at least an inch of distilled or rain water all the time. Do not allow plants to dry out, as they prefer soggy conditions that are similar to their natural environment.

All Sarracenia require a winter dormancy starting in October and ending in February. Many of the pitchers will turn brown and die back during this time. Leave them outdoors in full sun, sitting in distilled water during this period.

If you live in an area that snows; they may be kept indoors on a bright windowsill, or in an unheated garage wet all the time.
