Scientific name: Sarracenia
Common name: Hooded Pitcher Plant, Trumpet Pitcher

Sarracenia is a carnivorous plant with many tubular pitcher-shaped leaves radiating out from the growing point, and then turning upwards with their trap openings facing the centre of the crown. The trap is a vertical tube with a 'hood' extending over its entrance; and below it the top of the tube usually has a rolled lip which secretes nectar and scents. The insects are attracted by a nectar-like secretion on the lip of pitchers, as well as a combination of colour and scent, causes insects to fall inside, where they die and are digested by the plant as a nutrient source. Slightly similar to Nepenthes, Sarracenia is slightly smaller and one of the easiest carnivorous plant to grow for the fascination.

Watering your plant is very much a cause and effect event. If your plant is looking good - green, shiny and healthy looking - then you are doing the right things. If it is wilting, yellow or spotted, not much new growth, you need to review your watering habits and make adjustments.

Improper watering is the main cause of death with indoor houseplants. Usually this would be from overwatering. Overwatering is usually caused by watering your houseplants too often; not by the amount of water given but the frequency of times in watering your plants.

The amount and interval of watering for each plant is different and depends on a variety of factors. These include the type of plant, the pot size, the soil and growing medium, the light intensity, the weather and the micro environment condition, the amount of foliage and the overall health of the plant.

The general rule of thumb is that you should only water a houseplant if the top of the soil feels dry. Water deeply, thoroughly and infrequently!
