Insect-Eating Plants and How to Grow Them
Insect-Eating Plants and How to Grow
For anyone who has ever tried in vain to keep a mail-order Venus Fly Trap alive, help is at hand. Nurseryman Slack explains how to cultivate this and the 14 other species of carnivorous plants, both indoors and outside in artificial bogs. While Slack's Carnivorous Plants (MIT Pr., 1979) focuses on natural history, this work provides detailed information on cultivation. Numerous excellent illustrations and precise, practical information make it a worthwhile addition to horticultural collections.

The Sinister Beauty of Carnivorous
The alluring nature of carnivorous plants is on stunning display in this fine art-style collection of botanical photographs. Over 140 color images show in minute detail species, hybrids, and cultivars from around the world, many painstakingly cultivated by the author in his native New York.

Additional sections offer a primer on equipment and conditions for growing the specimens; identify threats to the plants’ natural habitats and the conservation organizations that are working to protect them; and present a survey of Long Island’s native carnivorous plants, making this a valuable horticultural reference as well. This book will appeal to both fine art photography aficionados and horticultural enthusiasts.

Venus Fly Trap, B52 mericlone, Maintenance Free, 100% Growth Guarantee
Venus Fly Trap, B52 mericlone, Maintenance Free, 100%
Dionea muscipula B52 is one of the largest cultivars with claws that can reach up to 2” in size. Our Venus Fly Traps grow in a gel medium that contains all the necessary nutrients and water to grow and thrive! Once the Fly Trap grows too large for the container (usually takes 4-6 months), you can open the lid, take it out using tweezers, and plant it in carnivorous soil mix. By this time your Venus Flytrap will have divided to over 30 plant clusters while increasing in height and claw size.Instructions: DO NOT remove the lid until you plan on taking the plant out, or the gel will become contaminated with mold. Set it on a surface avoiding sunlight or strong light with heat (fluorescent or LED is fine, but will cause interior condensation). A darker area “tells” the plants to grow taller, and a brighter area “tells” the plants to green up, broaden the leaves, and increase claw size. Play with these parameters to customize your growth! Enjoy your plant for months, without worrying about maintenance, bugs, or spills! That’s it! Your purchase will include a care guide.At Bloomify, we use state of the art plant technology to bring you beautiful maintenance free plants.Damage guarantee: We have a very low damage rate, however occasional rough shipping conditions may cause d...
