Sarracenia ‘Judith Hindle’

I recently added this compact pitcher plant to my little aquarium of carnivorous plants. It is now complete. I really can’t fit another plant in there.

Okay, I could probably squeeze another sundew in if I tried hard enough. And believe me, if one so happens to come along, I will.

Full picture when I finally find the time to take the plants out of their individual pots and assemble the aquarium as I want it.

  1. I love my pitcher plants! It’s my first year growing them, and while I’ve moved mine to the sunroom with intention just to re-pot and then put it back outside because I read that they needed a winter/cold period?

    Hmmm… It would look pretty awesome inside though… Do you keep yours indoors year round?

  2. Stephy: You can overwinter the hardy Sarracenia purpurea outdoors. I haven’t tried to overwinter the plant in this photo, ‘Judith Hindle’ (a hybrid), outside but have heard that they can survive if they are mulched well.

    I’m growing mine in a pot so won’t be putting it outside but will instead provide it with a dormancy period in a location that is cold but not freezing.

  3. Oh, yes, Gayla. Absolutely fritillaria! I used to have a little patch of the nodding snakeshead lily variety that the maple roots finally strangled. Must remember to plant some more. Was particularly fond of the white form, which gave that subtle white-on-white plaid pattern.
