*New  Beautiful Savage of the Plant World: Nepenthes 
(A Gardening Workshop)

 Beautiful Savage 3 March 325

Found in places with low level of nutrients, carnivorous plants have developed the adaptation of snacking on the occasional insect to supplement their nutrition needs. The specialised growth forms which help the plants trap their prey have also captured the hearts of gardeners.

This workshop will introduce participants to the different species of these beautiful carnivores and how to grow some of them at home. Focus will be placed on Nepenthes, commonly known as the pitcher plant.
