Sarracenia leucophylla is an uncommonly pretty plant, even by the standards of Sarracenia ! It is a preposterously flamboyant pitcher plant, and its most noteworthy feature is that the top third or more of each pitcher is wonderfully pigmented white. The white top is usually innervated with green and/or red veins, overall making a very nice effect. The lip is very large, and often spouted, much like the lip on a Sarracenia flava pitcher.
Seed will need to be scattered onto damp soil and then kept cold for 4-6 weeks (placing the pot in a fridge works fine). Make sure the soil stays damp but not waterlogged, if the pot is covered, make sure it isn't covered so tightly air cannot get in. Stretching some transparent plastic film over the spot and using a pin to make a few air holes does the trick nicely. The seed tray then needs to be put somewhere warm and with luck the seeds will germinate.
It is important that the soil is kept wet throughout the growing season. In autumn it can be allowed to dry out a bit as the plant dies back, and when frosty, icy or snowy the Pitcher shouldn't be watered at all
Yellow Pitcher Plants enjoy direct sunlight, and will not do as well in shady areas or north-facing windowsills. Hot summers will not cause problems provided the soil stays wet
