This is one wild Sarracenia! With its large, skewiff mouth and flared hood Sarracenia 'Asbo' is sure to stand out in any collection. In the UK, ASBO is an acronym for 'AntiSocial Behaviour Order' which I assume is the inspiration behind the name.
Sarracenia 'Asbo' was selected from flava hybrids grown from wild seed by Alistair Pearce of South West Carnivorous Plants.

Plant Size On Offer
Plant photos usually show the mother plant, not the smaller divisions offered for sale.
Divisions taken from mother plants are planted into 9cm pots. The size of divisions can vary greatly and will always be sent largest first. If you'd like to know the size of a plant before ordering, please feel free to get in touch.
Sarracenia plants are incredibly easy to care for, given the right conditions. An unheated greenhouse is an ideal location for Sarracenia, they can be grown outside in the UK but a greenhouse provides a longer growing season. Here are the 3 golden rules for healthy Sarracenia.
- Provide as much sun as possible.
- Keep their pots sat in 1-2cm of rainwater.
- Use acidic soil. A 1:1 peat moss & perlite mix is typical but you can also research peat-free alternatives.
