Carnivorous Plant Beginner's Set 2
This introductory collection of carnivorous plants includes examples of a variety of carnivorous plants. Selections are made from Flytraps, Pitcher Plants, Sundews, Butterworts, and Bladderworts. They include 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 CPs. A Sundew, such as the Cape Sundew grows to the size of a baseball, and has glistening traps that move slowly to snarl and engulf their prey. The Butterwort has pretty flowers, and sticky leaves that catch small insects. Terrestrial bladderworts have underground traps that catch nematodes. All grow in the same conditions, and are some of the easier carnivorous plants to grow. Once potted up, they will do nicely in a small tray on the window sill. A terrarium is not necessary, but helpful in drier climates. Shipped bare-root, wrapped in sphagnum moss. Illustration is representative of species, and does not show specific plants shipped.
You select the size: small, medium, large, when available. For size and care information refer to the specific plant pages.
Varieties and species are our choice.
During their dormant season, plants may be sent that are dormant rhizomes, corms or hibernaula, trimmed of old traps. Tropical forms may be substituted with other temperate species or varieties. 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.
