...while the majority of animals feed directly upon plants "for tis their nature to," there are plants which turn the tables and feed upon them.

Asa Gray (1810-1888)

The Carnivorous Plant Society was formed in 1978 to bring together like-minded people in order to exchange information, to share experiences and to provide a forum to develop the hobby.

Today this charitable organisation remains dedicated to the promotion of carnivorous plants whether in the wild or in cultivation.  Its main activities focus on conservation and education: protecting those carnivorous plant species and habitats which are most at risk, and inspiring and teaching the public about these amazing plants - and encouraging their cultivation.

The Carnivorous Plant Society is only able to achieve its objects because of amazing supporters like you - and its members range from absolute novice carnivorous plant growers to some of the world's leading experts in their particular speciality. The Society is based in the United Kingdom but welcomes members from around the world.
