Anyone else love these?
I have just ordered two new pitcher plants ;D
Pest control for the boys.

Lucinda, are you suggesting that your pitcher plants are going to eat the boys as a form of pest control!

lol - a carnivorous plant, now that is a great idea... I was toying with the idea of getting an electric bug machine but why bother when nature can do a better job. What sort do you get, where do you get them from and do they take lots of looking after?

sorry for all the questions

Luke, they're great fun. At one time I had about 12 of them. Some garden centres/ nurseries have them but the best come from Hampshire Carnivorous Plants. Website: www.hantsflytrap.com or www.hampshire-carnivorousplants.co.uk

My favourites are pitchers; there are also fly traps, butterwort and sundew. The main thing to remember is they need rainwater or mineral water. Tap water will kill them. I have to say mine have always been very lazy with fly catching! They do have gorgeous flowers though!

E mail me if you would like to know more! ;D
