Osmocote is a pellet fertilizer that is safe for use with carnivorous Sarracenia and Nepenthes. It is a time release fertilizer that we have available in 14 - 14- 14 strength.

If you are looking for bugs for Winter feeding or just in general, to give you plants the extra boost of nutrition, please check out our ever growing Accessories section.

You will receive one 3" x 5" resealable kraft bag containing 3 Tablespoons of fertilizer made up of tiny time-release pellets. Osmocote can be used on most Nepenthes & Sarracenia. Nepenthes should be fertilized with one pellet in a pitcher once they are large enough to handle it without burning up, such as the medium stage. For Sarracenia, put for pellets in each pot at the beginning of Spring and once again in four months and then allow to go dormant when the time comes.

Directions for Use:

For Nepenthes: Place one or two pellets in each pitcher that appears. Three may be used on large pitchers. If using two pellets burns the pitcher, then leave it alone and let it continue to absorb what is available in that pitcher and then decrease to one per pitcher for a while, until they get bigger. While you may lose that pitcher, the plant will still benefit from the fertilizer that is absorbed by the plant. These are time-release pellets and will only need to be given to each pitcher once in the entire life of that particular pitcher.

For Sarracenia: Push two to four pellets in the soil of a 4” - 6” pot in the Spring and then four more again in four and a half months, at the halfway point of their nine months outside of dormancy. Only fertilize twice per year and four and a half months apart. We do not recommend soil feeding for any other type of carnivorous plants. Better to foliar feed the others with Maxsea.


Winter Shipping

96 hour HEAT PACKS are available under the Accessories category. Due to the colder weather and the postal delays from Covid-19 and the increased number of packages during the holidays, we are only offering the larger, 96 hour heat pack and are upgrading all orders with a heat pack to Priority to hopefully ensure that the heat pack is still working upon arrival.

If the daytime temperature in your area or mine is below 45 degrees, we recommend a heat pack. If your area is going to be extremely cold, then you may need two heat packs. If you do not want to include heat packs during cold weather, then you take full responsibility if your plant freezes. We may check the weather between South Carolina and your location, and send a message to recommend adding a heat pack. We do not leave our plants outside for the post office to pick them up and instead take the plants to the post office before the postal truck comes at 4pm so that they are not sitting outside in the elements. We want to provide you with the highest quality plants possible and between our cost and the extra added cost of shipping, there is no mark up on heat packs and they are simply provided as a service to ensure your plants arrive safely.


They last at least 96 hours. Due to mail delays, we are only offering the 96 hour heat pack at this time. For an additional $7 charge, we are offering a shipping upgrade to priority shipping with an included heat pack. We cannot be responsible for plants that were damaged by extreme cold where a heat pack was not purchased, so please check your weather and take postal delays into consideration.
