3" Darlingtonia Californica 'Pitcher Plant'


We have run out of stock for this item.

The Darlingtonia has a nice name but it is a savage, carnivorous menace. Native to N. Calif. and W. Oregon swampy bogs, it sits there in the wetlands and devours insects. Hollow green pipes laced with a network of blood red veins sway out and up from the pot, ending in what looks like a happy smile, waiting for daring bugs that will slip down the slick throats.  More mature plants can grow up to 3' tall and will develop a large curved hood that envelops the pipe, also sprouting a fancy pair of deep red wings to add to the weirdness. In your bog, it will need a lot of humidity and loves terrariums. And bugs. 

Also known as Cobra Lily, Cobra Plant or California Pitcher Plant.

Quick Care Guide:

  • Water - Med/High (4):  Prefers more water than most, but soil can dry out periodically. Use a spray bottle to mist and increase humidity levels without soaking the soil and roots.
  • Light - Medium (3):  Plant prefers natural, diffused light. Can be placed in a spacious living room. Indirect light preferred. No direct sunlight on leaves.
  • Difficulty - Medium (3):  Not too difficult to keep happy, but does require some attention.
