Sarracenia purpurea, commonly known as the Purple Pitcher Plant, is a carnivorous plant found naturally in the North America, growing to about 15 cm in height.. These are trumpet shaped plants that capture insects by attracting them with nectar. They rely on a combination of nectar, chemicals and scents to attract prey. The shape of the pitchers and the waxy, sticky or slippery sides of the pitcher and downward pointing hairs and wetting agents stop the insects escaping once the prey are lured in. The Purple Pitcher Plant has pitchers are slender at the basal rosette, rapidly becoming broader and balloon-like. Pitchers are green with purple tints becoming darker with age. Flowers appear with the spring and are 5 to 8 cm wide and some 30 cm in height in a delightful reddish-purple to maroon. The tried and true way of germinating Sarracenia seed is to cold stratify the seed for 4 weeks. Storing the seed dry in the refrigerator isn't stratification. Stratification is storing the seed in a cold and damp environment usually with natural materials that may aid the process of convincing the seed it is time to start growing. The easiest method is to refrigerate seeds in a small plastic bag with a few strands of finely chopped sphagnum moss dampened with purified water. Live sphagnum is the best choice. The moss should be wet enough so that if you squeeze it you will see water but there shouldn't be any free water in the bag. If you don't have live or dried sphagnum moss and must use peatmoss, get it very wet then squeeze it to remove most of the water and make sure there is plenty of air in the plastic bag. The seeds need air. The seeds could die if the peatmoss is too wet. You may want to soak seed for a day before you stratify them. Put the seeds in a small dish of purified water and a tiny touch of dish detergent.
