What plant is this?

callaslilyFebruary 6, 2013

Can anyone tell me what this plant is? I think its carnivorous... I've kept it in a dryer climate and it was dying so now its in more warm and always moist climate and its surviving and thriving. It grows longer and longer each day... I just have no clue what it is and what the exact care it needs.

It's a Sarracenia. Too young to tell which species with any confidence though... They're fairly simple to grow and prefer moist peat or sphagnum based soil and NO fertilizer. They grow into beautiful plants that will come back year after year if properly cared for.

Okay MonkeyNM, I figured as much. I just really wanted to make sure because I just started growing any sort of plant in general lol.
