Carnivorous Plants

Sean MurphyComment

At Rouvalis Flowers, we take pride in carrying plants and flowers that you don't see in your everyday flower shop. We go out of our way to hunt down unique, unusual, and eye catching botanicals. This week, we are excited, and a little scared, to introduce a variety of carniverous plants to our store! We are carrying a range of these bizarre plants, from Venus Fly Traps to Pitcher Plants. Whether you enjoy them for their strange appearance, a conversation starter, or even to help resolve your summer fruit fly battle, we hope you'll find them as interesting as we do!  Here are a few images from plants in our store, and some information on how to care for them. 

Here is a close up of the Venus Fly Trap, probably one of the most recognized of the  carnivorous plants. They make a great house plant, and a great conversation piece! Simply keep the moss or soil they are planted in moist, and remember, they like bright light!

Another one of our favorites is called a Pitcher Plant. These bulbous pitchers hang from the plant and attract prey such as flies and ants. The plant is full and lush, bright green leaves are complimented by the red and orange hues of the pitchers. The plant likes bright sun and needs watered weekly, keeping the pitchers wet when watering.

At Rouvalis, we even use some carnivorous plants in our fresh cut flower arrangements. These saracena lillies add interesting texture and style to any arrangement. They are a long lasting fresh cut flower, and are a great addition for someone who enjoys more unique flowers!
