CARNIVOROUS PLANTS

 

 

Carnivorous plants are plants that trap and digest tiny animals, typically insects. They use their leaves as traps. Many traps lure prey with their bright colours, extra-floral nectaries, guide hairs. Some others have parts that are sticky or slippery or designed in a way that makes it hard for prey to escape. Once the prey is caught, it will be digested and  the nutrients will be absorbed by the plant. Most carnivorous plants will grow without consuming prey but their growth will be expedited when there are nutrients derived from their prey.

Carnivorous plants available at A Tilly A Day are Venus flytrap, nepenthes, sarracenia, pinguicula and drosera.

LIGHT

Carnivorous plants love a bright spot, preferably near the window or at the balcony where there is sunlight.

WATER

Keep the media moist all of the time.  Carnivorous plants prefer rainwater or distilled water.

POTTING MEDIA

Carnivorous plants prefer to be potted with live sphagnum moss, dried sphagnum moss or a mix of peat moss and perlite/sand.
