Germination of

Sarracenia Leucophylla

White-Topped Trumpet Pitcher Plant: Cobra Plant, Trumpet Leaf Plant, White Pitcher Plant, Sarracenia Leucophylla

Sarracenia Leucophylla

Sarracenia leucophylla, or white-top pitcher plant, can be grown from seed. The seeds should be sown in a well-draining soil mix and kept moist until germination occurs. Germination can take several weeks or even months, and the seedlings should be kept in a cool, well-lit location.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
