Introducing the famous Sarracenia flava 'Goldie', a must-have for any Sarracenia collector. This flava boasts bright golden-coloured pitchers that are sure to catch your eye in the spring.
Sarracenia flava 'Goldie' originates from seeds sown by Paul Gardener at P & J Plants in the UK.
The new pitchers start as an unusually bright and stunning yellow colour before they open. 'Goldie' requires a good amount of sun to attain its shade of buttery yellow. Although the colour is brightest in strong light, it can 'burn' later in the season when grown in the greenhouse. To combat this, it's recommended to keep it lightly shaded, which not only prevents burning but also promotes better growth. Don't miss out on the chance to add this stunning pitcher plant to your collection.

Sarracenia plants are straightforward 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.
