The Wonderful World of Insect Eating Plants
These pages are brought to you by Collectors Corner
These wonders of nature have captivated young and old since Darwin first described them in his journals over 100 years ago. Enter these pages to develop a better understanding of these freaks of nature.
Every country except the Antarctic has its own types of insect-eaters so a number of different methods have been evolved by these plants to achieve this amazing feat. Explore some of these methods through these pages.
Carnivorous plants are exactly that, they are meat-eaters or more correctly insect-eaters hence their true title Insectivorous plants (Carnivorous sounds far more interesting). These plants evolved in areas where there is a lack of nutrients in the soil or very poor condition where roots do not survive well. The plants have adapted their leaves into insect catchers that can hold down an insect and digest the internal juices. Insect eaters are therefore highly advances plants quite different from other plant types.
As these pages develop over the coming months we will be bringing you a variety of products and services as well as general interest pages.
The pages will be open to contribution by any interested parties and we hope it will develop into a major reference of information on carnivorous plants in the not too distant future.
Paradisia Nurseries produces over 500,000 carnivorous plants per annum for the local and export market. All our plants are produced in our own laboratories from selected plants. By early 2002 our company will be the largest exporter of carnivorous plants in the world, commercial enquiries welcome.
