I have been growing carnivorous plants from all over the world for about 20 years. Attracting, catching, digesting animals and benefiting from the resulting nutrients, are capabilities that push far beyond the usual behavioral span of a plant, thus commanding elaborate and spectacular morphological adaptations. Photography is a way to show and honour the extraordinary beauty of these rare, fragile and often endangered plants, and at the same time, document their progression under my care. Left is most recent.
