Carnivorous Plants


Since it's slow in the veggie garden right now, I thought I'd share some of John's carnivorous plants with y'all.











Have a great weekend friends.

Hopefully, it'll warm up some and I can get outside for a little while. The garden could really use some love and attention.

I have never seen any of these types of plants before. Does he have an Audrey plant too?

The monsters and I bought the Mrs a venus fly trap a month or so ago from the nursery we most frequent - Home Depot. We have no flies but we've been feeding it small pieces of chicken. It seams to be doing ok next to the cold kitchen window.

Gosh, you must be in the doghouse a lot.

LOL!

Those are amazing!

Big Shamu said...

Do they eat pork brains?

Dani said...

Erin, I like your new profile pic. :)

Buzz, that is such a classic. Love it!

John is always bringing some home from the Depot to nurse back to life. Poor things always get set out in the full sun, and they end up cooking to death in those plastic cubes.

FC, hehehe.
I was amazed at all the different species that are out there.

Dani said...

Shamy, I'm still shuddering over that! Who eats pork brains in milk?

Susan said...

Those plants look other-worldly. I like them!

Darla said...

All of these are very interesting looking..

My daughter actually asked for a carnivorous plant for christmas 2 years ago. I could not find one in Florida anywhere.

These Sundews (and lone Pinguicula) are so nice, Dani. This is such a great hobby.

I have over 100 Venus Flytraps in a garden bed outside. They are just waking up from their sleep. I grew them all from seed and some of them are getting to be quite mature now.

Dani said...

Susan, they really do!

Darla, I like the fuzzy looking ones that he has the best.

Native, check out http://www.carnivorousplantnursery.com. John orders from them every so often.

Dani said...

Prospero, WOW! That sounds incredible! How lucky you are to have such a green thumb.
