    There are six species of the insectivorous pitcher plants in Florida. Sarracenia minor is frequently found growing in flatwoods and bogs from the northern peninsula south to Highlands and Okeechobee Counties, and then west to the central panhandle (Wunderlin, 2003). They flower in the spring.

    It occurs almost always (estimated probability 99%) under natural conditions in wetlands. Hooded pitcher plant is listed as a Threatened Plant in the Preservation of Native Flora of Florida Act. This is defined as species of plants native to the state that are in rapid decline in the number of plants within the state, but which have not so decreased in such number as to cause them to be endangered.
