Sarracenia purpurea ssp. venosa is our favorite species of Sarracenia, and one of the shortest varieties of pitcher plants too. They often grow in the partial shade of other plants, making it an excellent choice for an indoor terrarium. When grown in bright light, however, the entire pitcher initially is covered with deep red veins on a glowing green background. But eventually many of these can turn almost solid deep red...awesome! Unless otherwise specified, all Sarracenia are shipped potted to reduce stress. Water and enjoy!
