Purple Pitcher Plant

Grow Pot



Sarracenia purpurea

Deceptive and deadly, the carnivorous purple pitcher plant traps insects in its modified leaves. Often found in nutrient-poor bogs, purple pitchers rely on insects, beetles, and spiders to supplement their diet.

Unsuspecting prey, lured by bright colours and sweet nectar, enter the purple pitcher’s deep, pouch-like leaves.

Losing their footing on the smooth hairs and waxy covering on the leaf’s inner surface, the prey drowns in a pool of liquid at the base. The nutrients from their decayed bodies are then absorbed by the purple pitcher plant.
