They do well in vivariums, as their small compact pitchers dont overcroud other plants. Frogs also like them better than bromeliad funnels, they hold a lot of water! 8) Dont fertilise it, and only give it purified water. A good substrate for Sarracenia purpurea is two parts peat/coco fiber, one part LFS, one part sand, and one part perlite. Keep the plant in a pot, and from Thanksgiving-Valentines day (about 3 months), You will need to take the plant out of the pot and give it a dormancy. If you live in a cold climate where temps get below 45ºF in the winter, just put the plant outside. Otherwise bare-root it, soak the plant in fungicide, wrap it in a paper towel, stick it in a baggie, and toss it in the fridge. Good luck! If you can, please post a picture :wink:If so how did they work out? I bought a small plant from Lowe’s the other day to put into the vive I am putting together for some up coming frogs. What type of substrate works best for them; how fast do they grow?
Thanks in advance for your help.
