Hi everyone, i bought a Sarracenia (not sure on the variety) as a house plant about a year ago, but i'd really like to see it in the garden. I read somewhere that they are ok to go in ponds- has anyone done this successfully? Any tips?

On plant Sarracenia



sarrancenias need water.I had a small collection a few years ago,mine were stood in Rain Water permantly.
So depending on where you live they should survive in a pond.

I live in Newcastle. Do they need a particular kind of water?

Rain water is best for them. If you live in an area of hard tap water, don't use it or you will kill the sarracenias

I posted some pics of my Sarracenia's yesterday. They live in a container that has no drainage at all. It acts as a mini bog garden.
