Welcome to the Carnivorous Plant Society!

About Us

The Carnivorous Plant Society was formed in London in 1978 to promote the study and conservation of carnivorous plants. It became a registered charity in 1981.

The Society brings together anyone interested in these amazing plants – from novice growers to the world’s leading experts – to protect the species and habitats that are most at risk; inspire and teach the public; and to encourage cultivation. This work is made possible through the support of the Society’s fantastic members.

The Society is based in the UK but welcomes members from around the world. If you’re not already a member, please consider joining us!
