Carnivorous plant thread! Post your pics here!

Why should all the orchidophiles have all the fun?
Who cares about pretty flowers that open once or twice a year when you've got plants that eat bugs all the time?

I'll start off with some from my own collection:

Heliamphora heterodoxa


Heliamphora purpurescens


Drosera cadauca



from the left: Heliamphora sarraceinioides, sp. "akopan", purpurascens, collina, and heterodoxa

Utricularia asplundii


Pinguicula cyclosecta


Nepenthes platychila


Heliamphora sarraceinioides


Drosera adelae


Dionaea muscipula


Heliamphora sp "akopan"


Heliamphora minor x heterodoxa


Nepenthes jacquelineae


Nepenthes tenuis


Drosera lanata


Drosera falconeri


Utricularia graminifolia


that's all for now. please share your own!

Your collection is amazing! Have always wanted to collect carnivorous plants but hubby says I can only pick between plants or fish

But! I do have a regular ole fly trap. It's currently hibernating in my fridge so here is a summer picture.

My 1st & only so far, Nepenthes 'sanguines black'



I was having good growth in my Aquaponic growbed but, I wasn't having pitchers develop. I potted it up today and put it in my 5gl emersed tank. I hope the higher humidity will help.

My turn. Here's some of my Sarracenia from earlier in the growing season. All grown outdoors.

S. x mooreana



Sarracenia "Copper Vase"



S. "Daina's Delight"



S. flava var. maxima



S. x [(Rubra x Oreophila) x (Oreophila x Flava)]



S. 'Dixie Lace'



S. x mooreana - Autumn pitchers



Group Shot



S. alata v. nigropurpurea 'Night' F2 - I got this plant before Hurricane Sandy hit and I was brave (stupid) enough to pot it during the hurricane.



S. leucophylla



S. x "Daina's Delight" & Flava var. Maxima



S. x "Extreme Green" - This one is an Oreophila x Flava maxima hybrid but unlike my other Oreo x Flava cross, this plant was shooting up most of it's first pitchers late summer/early fall.



Anyways, I use tap water for my plants since the TDS never gets above 50 ppm.

Oh guys! Your plants are all gorgeous! I miss carnivorous plants, the house where I spent the first 23 years of my life had wild pitcher plants in the yard, I use to feed them Mwhahaha. I also fed the antlions lol. Are there any good sources online to buy some? I've never found any for sale in the las Vegas valley.

Back on the forum after two moves across two years! Slowly getting back into the hobby!

I'm starting to feel the same way. I started rehabbing Mark-Down table Orchids I find at Home Depot last summer. I'm slowly replacing house plants with them. I can see how some of these Carnivores would fit in well. I just need to identify the ones that will do well indoors over winter with the light I can offer and the low humidity.

Check out California Carnivores, Sarracenia Northwest, and Cooks Carnivorous plants. If you know what you're looking for, eBay is also a good place to get some.
