Hungry Plants

Suppliers of carnivorous plants with appetite!

 

S Judy Welcome to the world of hungry plants! Carnivorous plants lure and trap insects, before slowly digesting them to satisfy their hunger. This helps them grow in sphagnum peat bogs were there is little plant nutrients. They have wonderful colours to attract their food and bizarrely adapted leaves to catch and eat it.

Sarracenia minor Carnivorous plants are easy to grow once you know where and why they grow. The following web pages will guide you through this. These plants can be obtained from Hungry Plants nursery, growers of Venus flytraps (Dionaea muscipula), Pitcher plants (Sarracenia), Cobra lilies (Darlingtonia californica), Sundews (Drosera) Butterworts (Pinguicula) and Bladderworts (Ultricularia).

Fly on Flava The plant collection, consisting of over 2500 plants in over 600 varieties, is currently housed in a large polytunnel and a small greenhouse. In addition hardy and native carnivorous plants are grown in an outdoor bog, and tropical varieties such as Nepenthes and Heliamphora, are grown and propagated in terraria and in the conservatory.


We will have our next open day in June when the sarracenia pitchers are looking their best.

  see  Open Day

Personal visits to view the collection are very welcome, but please contact us beforehand to make an appointment.
