A carnivorous plant with modified leaves that form a tuberous pitcher. It attracts their pray by the brightly coloured pigments in the leaves and once inside the prey is trapped. The prey consists of small insects and aquatic organisms that once trapped inside will decompose providing food for the plant. Sarracenia Redneck has tall long throated trumpets with a red throat. The foliage is striking with its deep purple veined markings. Naturally occurring in boggy marshes, which have very poor nutrient soil. A perfect plant to grow indoors, in a terrarium, in containers or outside in sheltered marshes or boggy areas.
