Heliamphora

Heliamphora, commonly called Sun or Marsh Pitchers, is a carnivorous plant that catches insects with its unique pitchers. The sun pitcher plants are mainly found in Brazil and Venezuela. The plant catches insects to compensate for the nutrient-poor soil it grows on. The tiny bud at the top of the plant contains the nectar glands, […]

Nepenthes (Tropical Pitcher Plant)

Nepenthes, Monkey Cups, or Tropical Pitcher plants are impressive plants, needing humidity and warmth. They can divided into two main groups – highland plants, and lowland plants, but there is some cross over where you find the intermediate ones. The produce two typed of trap – lower traps formed on lower growth, and upper pitchers […]

Bladderwort (Utricularia)

Utricularia or Bladderworts are found all over the world and can be divided into three types: 1. Terrestrial (U. sandersonii, U. bisquamata) Terrestrials are best grown in water trays or pots and saucers, though they are also very good at colonising if you wish to plant several plants in one container. Grow in a frost […]

Butterworts (Pinguicula)

Pinguicula or Butterworts can be split into three major care groups: Mexican / Tropical Butterworts, North American Butterworts and European Butterworts. None of the Butterworts like full sun, but they don’t mind it bright. The Mexican species and hybrids (Pinguicula x wesser, Pinguicula laueana)make excellent house plants for a north or east facing windowsill, or in the greenhouse […]

Cobra Lily (Darlingtonia)

Darlingtonia Californica is an easy and rewarding plant to grow in the right position, but will struggle if it is not in the right place. Grow in pots (preferably brown or white rather than black to prevent too much root warming) in water trays or saucers in a cold greenhouse or outside. Darlingtonia does not […]

Albany Pitcher (Cephalotus)

Cephalotus or the West Australian pitcher plant can be a little tricky to grow. It has a tendency to suddenly keel over and die! It is worth persevering though. They can tolerate sun or shade but we would recommend a bright position but put of full sun. The traps tend to be greener but larger […]

Sundew (Drosera)

Drosera or Sundews can be one of the easiest carnivorous plants to grow, but are a huge group of varied plants. There are several groups: hardy, tropical, Cape/ warm temperate, pygmy and tuberous sundews. They all love the sun, but some will tolerate light shade. A warm or cold greenhouse or conservatory is ideal for […]

Trumpet Pitcher Plants (Sarracenia)

Sarracenias are one of the easiest carnivorous plant to grow, liking full sun in the summer, and a cold winter. It should be cold enough for them to stop growing – anything from an unheated conservatory to an unheated greenhouse, or outside. Frost is not a problem for the majority. Full sun does mean just […]

Venus Flytrap (Dionaea Muscipula)

The Venus Flytrap is the plant most people want to start with, but it is the one that many have difficulty with. It is not a tropical plant and comes from the same part of the world as the Sarracenias. It does like full sun-south facing window or conservatory, but also needs a winter. If […]
