    2nd South Bay Carnivorous Show and Sale



    2nd South Bay Carnivorous Plant Show and Sale

    April 21st marks our second South Bay Carnivorous Plant Show and Sale. A unique opportunity to see first-hand one of nature's botanical wonders: carnivorous plants. You will not only learn about these amazing plants, but also have the opportunity to bring them home with you. As long as you understand the special care that's required to grow them, most carnivorous plants can be adapted to grow in a number of places inside and outside the typical home.
    At the show, you will have an opportunity to talk to carnivorous plant vendors and hobbyists alike who'll be happy to share their growing experiences with you.
    We are open to the public, and there is no charge for vendors or attendees.

    Local carnivorous plant vendors will be there to sell plants: Nepenthes, Sarracenia, Drosera, Darlingtonia and other carnivorous plant families will all be represented.
    Distributors for some of the largest carnivorous plant nurseries: Exotica, Malaysiana Tropicals, ******* Nurseries, Borneo Exotics and more!

    Brooke and I have already begun calculating the cost of gas and hotel fare. By the looks of things, there's a good chance I'll be there.
