Like other species of , most of its nutrients through prey capture.However, prey acquisition is said to be inefficient, with less than 1% of the visiting prey captured within the pitcher. Even so, anecdotal evidence by growers often shows that pitchers quickly fill up with prey during the warm summer months. Prey fall into the pitcher and drown in the rainwater that collects in the base of each leaf.
When mature, This species needed a winter dormancy to maintain vigor.

Potting instructions: The Media is pre-mixed but dry, just add water! Pour the dry media into a bowl and add warm water, mixing until wet. The peatmoss in the media does not wet easily the first time and my take 30 minutes to fully saturate. Once the media is wet and cool, plant plants with roots on a downward angle in the pot. Never allow plants/pots to dry out, sitting is a small tray with 0.5” of water is advised.
Care: Sarracenia enjoy full sun, give them as much light as possible and starting the year after purchase they will need a winter dormancy to maintain vigor long term. If the Red purpurea goes completely green, it needs more light!
