Nepenthes alata (Tropical Pitcher Plant) - Live Plant
This item is currently on back order....
Currently in production for spring 2020
Details: This is one of our favourite carnivorous plants, proving to be much more gardener friendly compared to most! Grows fairly quickly, and does not seem sensitive to various water sources (unlike many other carnivorous species).
Grows best in average to bright diffused light. Be sure to maintain constant soil moisture, but do not grow in standing water. Do not force-feed the pitchers, instead let flies find their way into the cups. We plant these in a specialized soil mix that includes unconditioned peat moss (more acidic) and compost.

Pre-order Info: Once your order is confirmed we will hold this plant for local pickup on or after the specified pickup date. If you are not able to come to us we can hold your plant for shipping once weather permits, which at this point will be spring 2020.
Shipping Info: We ship live plants via Canada Post Expedited parcel to all locations within Canada. Shipping from Winnipeg takes 2 - 4 days to most areas in BC, AB, SK, MB and ON. Orders going to most locations in QC, NB and NS take 4 days while other parts of Canada and remote destinations can take 5 or more days. Sage Garden cannot guarantee live plants to destinations with a Canada Post declared shipping time of more than 4 days.
Sage Garden normally ships live plants the Monday or Tuesday after orders are received but as noted we are not currently able to ship due to winter conditions. Shipping will resume in May 2020.
Any shipping charges are in addition to the cost of plants and are calculated at check-out.
Sage Garden ships the same full-sized plants we sell at our local nursery, and we do not offer bare root shipping.
