The Carnivorous Plant FAQ v. 12


Google Custom Search

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 (or other fabulous plants), refer to my exciting Galleria Carnivora.

If you'd like to engage in social media, you can look for me on FaceBook.

Enjoy!

Rewrite!!!!!
Back when I first wrote the FAQ, there wasn't a whole lot on the web. Indeed, the FAQ predated the ICPS web presence! So I thought I had to include all the knowledge there was on carnivorous plants. Well, advance to the New Era, and we have a marvelously curated carnivorous plant knowledge base on wikipedia, Bob Ziemer's photofinder, a bazillion CP forums, etc., etc., etc.

So what I've done, really, is to remove some of the very dated material. Also, I've updated all the taxonomy with lots of new species.
