Plant your Sarracenia in a 50/50 mix of peat moss and sand, keep you planting media consistently moist using rain water or distilled water. Tap water contains chemicals that can kill your pitcher plant so do avoid tap water. (Never use fertilizer as it will kill your pitcher plant.) Use an ordinary container with holes along with a saucer underneath the container. You want to keep the soil moist--not soggy. Place your container in full sun to part shade and enjoy!
