Greetings and welcome, seeker of knowledge!

Here you may learn about the ecology, cultivation, conservation, and taxonomy of carnivorous plants. Unless explicitly indicated, I am the author of all text in the FAQ, and am responsible for its accuracy and content. If you seek stock photography of carnivorous plants, refer to my exciting Galleria Carnivora.

My Facebook presence: fairly active.
My YouTube channel: admittedly primitive, but perhaps getting better!

Enjoy!

My Books!
I have now written two books on crazy plants! "Growing Carnivorous Plants" (Timber Press) is a heavily illustrated book for those who like to take their carnivorous plant information hard and pure. Oh yes, "Growing Carnivorous Plants" is an excellent book, and surely something you need!

"Monster Plants" looks at all kinds of weird plants: carnivorous plants, parasitic plants, mycoparasites, sensitive plants, and plants that mimic the teeth-rattling stench of dead animals. Distributed by Scholastic, only kids can buy it, via Scholastic Book Press.

Monster Plants is directed towards young minds. Being a scientist, I present what I think are some of the coolest facts, always remembering that science is really fun.
