Lots of CP pics for today

The weather had been suitably humid, muggy and wet so we brought out my indoor carnivorous plants to play.  Ok, not to play.  😉   But to enjoy some “real” weather (sun, rain) and bugs.  Can’t forget the bugs!

This blog post contains Sundews, Venus fly traps, and lots of Pitcher Plants.




Notice the hairs.  They are curved to help prevent caught insects from crawling back out.


Next is a new growth on the pitcher plant, that has yet to fully open.
I love the color on it.


That is Sundew to the right of it.


Notice all the rain water caught in this next one.  It does not harm their digestive ability though.



The next ones are also Pitcher plants and a small Venus fly trap in the right corner.



More Pitcher Plant and Sundew:


Hope you enjoyed them.  I think CPs are lovely plants.  Creepy, but lovely.  🙂

  1. Hi Rose, I’m glad you enjoyed them! I have been somewhat fascinated with carnivorous plants ever since I was a kid. I was only able to find one book on them as a child (much to my great disappointment). But now there are some really great books out on CPs. I don’t keep many inside, due to their need for boggy conditions and my mold allergy. But I keep a small variety of them in a tank in my basement that stays inside most of the time, except for a small portion of the year. The Venus fly traps (who are more tolerant) are outside all year except for winter. I bring them in for winter due to the extremely cold extended freezes we have at times. But I leave the fly traps out for spring, summer & fall.


  2. This is an interesting plant. I haven’t seen them before either. Very pretty and it must be interesting to watch them “eat”. Becky must have missed this post….she has Venus Flytraps, I think. I can’t keep houseplants alive…so I gave up trying.


    • It is interesting to watch them eat I think. I’ve never been too much of a houseplant person myself either. I used to have some ivy and a couple little things years ago. But I don’t really keep anything inside now except for my CPs, now that my allergies are so bad. And my CPs stay in the basement when they are inside.
