Other recent books which I personally find useful and would recommend include Cultivating Carnivorous Plants by Natch Greyes ( link), Carnivorous Plants: Gardening with Extraordinary Botanicals by Nigel Hewitt-Cooper ( link), and - for serious growers - the work of Stewart McPherson ( link). As avid carnivorous plant growers, we understand that salt build-up can be toxic to some forms of carnivorous plants in larger than normal quantities. Nepenthes - also known as ‘Monkey cups’ or ‘Monkey jars’ - require slightly different conditions than their bog-dwelling cousins.

Growlands was established with the focus of developing innovative horticultural products backed by science across a multitude of specialist plants. Growlands is so confident with the science backing our plant food recipes that we offer a satisfaction and money-back guarantee. They are ideal for growing in containers, both indoors and out, and can be planted together to create an impressive, intriguing and varied collection. Some carnivorous plants are hardy, so can be grown outside all year round, while others need to be kept frost free, either indoors as houseplants or in a greenhouse. Finally, you might also try your local aquarium specialist - they sometimes sell water purified by reverse osmosis (RO).If you continue without changing your settings, we'll assume that you are happy to receive cookies on GiftRepublic.

Carnivorous plants don’t just catch tiny insects – some species of the tropical vine Nepethes are known to trap frogs, birds, mice, rats and other small mammals in their large fluid-filled pitchers.However the technique for growing wetland carnivorous plants is different from how you would grow typical garden plants. Grow Nepenthes x ventrata in a warm, bright room in a hanging container, ideally where it can receive a few hours of direct sun a day.

Alternatively, use a container with few or no drainage holes, such as a butler sink with the plug in. The filament-like shoots of aquatic bladderworts mimic algal threads that attract food for small crustaceans. Most carnivorous plants are relatively low maintenance, as long as care is taken to give them the correct growing conditions. Though there are hundreds of species, each with unique adaptations, carnivorous plants can be classified into five groups based on their trapping methods: pitfall, adhesive, snap, snare and suction.This Grow Carnivorous Plants section will help you grow and enjoy the more common and easier to grow carnivorous plants. There's no need to use fertiliser on your carnivorous plants – they get all the nutrients they need from the insects that they catch.
