Germination of

Sarracenia purpurea 'Venosa'

Purple Trumpet Plant 'Red Form' - Allamanda, Red Trumpet Vine

Sarracenia purpurea 'Venosa'

Sarracenia purpurea 'Venosa': Sarracenia purpurea 'Venosa' seeds should be sown in a container filled with a mixture of equal parts peat moss, sand, and perlite. The container should be placed in a tray of water and kept in a cool location with bright, indirect light. The seeds need to be kept moist at all times, so make sure the container doesn't dry out. Germination should occur in 2-4 weeks, after which the seedlings can be moved to individual containers with the same soil mixture. Keep the seedlings moist and in a bright location but out of direct sunlight.

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.
