Brocchinia reducta -$40
One of the three known carnivorous bromeliads, this species is the most commonly grown but a spectacle when mature. Adult plants develop broad, roughly linear leaves with blunt ends that grow upright in a variable manner, from fairly open like most bromeliads and green, to tightly packed together forming a single central tube with a yellow hue in very strong light. Up to two feet or more tall, it's not a small plant by any means.
Available plants are separated pups between 4-6" tall, can be shipped bare-root or potted for an additional $3.
Byblis lamellata x gigantea -$45
The perennial rainbow plants are an uncommon sight in cultivation, and the hybrid is among the easiest versions to grow! These plants can grow leaves that are over a foot long on an extended rosette or branching stems that can reach 2-3 feet in height, all parts of the plant covered in tiny glands. Under proper conditions (seasonal, hot in summer and cool in winter, with heavy feeding), plants may enter a several-month long blooming season and can hold half a dozen or more 2-inch flowers at a time, the petals with mildly serrated edges and a metallic pink-purple color. Plants often appreciate Osmocote pellets put 2-3 inches under the soil, and should be planted in large pots.
TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE: IN PROPAGATION
Dionaea muscipula "typical" -$7
Perhaps the most famous of carnivorous plants, a temperate species native to the longleaf pine savannahs of the Carolinas. The Venus Flytrap tends to average between 3-5 inches in diameter when mature, with broad, flat leaves or narrower upright leaves depending on the season ending in a clamshell-shaped snapping trap lined in interlocking "teeth," often flushed red on the inside of the trap and on the teeth. Spring may bring tall, thick stalks topped by an umbel of delicate white flowers that will open for a few days each.
Available plants are between 1-2" currently, selected from the pictured colony.
