This introductory collection of carnivorous plants is specifically selected for beginners and includes three of the most popular and easy to grow carnivorous plants. The Venus Flytrap is world famous for its actively moving traps. A Pitcher Plant, such as the Purple Pitcher Plant, is very curious with no moving parts but a pit fall trap that catches more insects than most carnivorous plants. Sundews grow a cluster of tentacle-like glistening traps that move slowly to snarl and engulf their prey.

These temperate, North American natives all grow in the same conditions, and are some of the easier carnivorous plants. Outdoor growing is ideal. If potted, they will do nicely in a small tray on a well-lit window sill during active growing months. During winter months plants should be allowed dormancy and will resume vigorous trap production come spring.

You select the size: small, medium, large, when available. For size and care information refer to the specific plant pages.

If ordered during winter months, plants may be sent that are dormant rhizomes, corms or hibernacula, trimmed of old traps. They will be true to size, but may not be showing their full forms. Given good growing conditions, they will emerge true to the size descriptions.

Terrarium kit carnivorous plants are shipped bare-root, wrapped in damp sphagnum moss. Photographs are representative of species, not the plants shipped.

❤️ 😍 Love them!!!@

I opened them immediately. I had my 3" pots w/saucers already made and my distilled water ready to go. I am overjoyed.

In spite of me

I received my starter set a week ago. Did not open the package for two days. I then potted them in peat moss, watered, and left them outside, in partial shade. I used tap water. Plants are doing well, except for the venus flytrap. I think it's going to make it, but the sundew and pitcher plant recovered from my abuse. Kudos!

Matt Randazzo
