The most famous of carnivorous plants, the Flytrap is instantly recognizable for its toothy leaves that clamp shut on its prey in the blink of an eye!

Like an octopus, the Sundew is surrounded by brightly coloured tentacles, each one coated in shimmering, sticky drops of sap that sparkle in the sun like drop of dew, giving this pretty plants its name.

Monkey Cups

The exotic looking Monkey Cups grow brightly coloured cups, each containing a sweet smelling nectar that lures its victim in before it falls to its doom.

Pitcher Plants

Pitcher plants’ beauty lies in their bright colours and unusually patterned leaves that shape themselves into champagne-like flutes.

Carnivorous Plant Care Guide

At Hungry Plants we pride ourselves on providing healthy and robust plants, along with great advice and support to help you care for them. Like any other plant, carnivorous plants need water, light and nutrients to grow. However, these hardy plants evolved to survive in the most inhospitable of regions, where the soil lacked even basic nutrients. As a result, carnivorous plants learned to trap insects and other small creatures to obtain these minerals and nutrients from them, rather than the barren soil.

They will feed themselves if left outside or on a sunny windowsill
