This Sarracenia × moorei (S. flava X leucophylla) was selected and grown by renowned carnivorous plant grower Ian Salter in Wales. It looks like it may have originally been purchased as a garden centre plant that turned out to be a real gem as it grew.
It has a really lovely lid which is quite large with a network of red veins running through it. The plant is generally a strong green colour but lightens to a more golden colour at the top with hints of cuprea tones.
As well as being a great-looking Sarracenia, it also exhibits a lot of hybrid vigour as a fast, strong grower.
Associated code: IS xM C3.

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.
