    10th Annual Fall Carnivorous Plant Show

    The 10th Annual Fall Carnivorous Plant Show

    Sponsored by the New England Carnivorous Plant Society


    Providence RI: The award winning New England Carnivorous Plant Society (NECPS) will again be

    hosting the Fall Carnivorous Plant Show at the Roger Williams Park Botanical Center Providence

    RI. Plant lovers and all those who enjoy something different will be able to get up close to hundreds
    of carnivorous plants exhibited by the members of the NECPS. Featured plants will include pitcher
    plants from Malaysia with traps the size of softballs that are capable of eating lizards and mice.
    There will also be sundews from Australia ranging from the size of a dime to 12+ inches high and the
    ever-popular Venus Fly trap. For you native plant lovers, NECPS will also display carnivorous plants
    that grow locally in Rhode Island and throughout New England.


    This is the largest collection of carnivorous plants displayed yearly on

    the east coast and the most popular show at the Botanical Center.


    Over 300 plants are scheduled to be on display!
    Free seminars on growing and feeding carnivorous plants will be offered!

    Lots of opportunities for photographers!

    Visit the Venus Fly Trap feeding area where you can observe up close how these plants devour
    insects. Plants and growing accessories will be available for purchase for both novice and
    experienced growers from carnivorous plant vendors and the NECPS. The permanent carnivorous
    plant bog exhibit will also be available for viewing. Society members will be present both days to
    explain how the plants feed, what they eat, where they live, and how they can be grown and enjoyed
    at home.


    Admission to the show is FREE with the purchase of regular admission to the

    Roger Williams Park Botanical Center

    Admission to the RWP Botanical Center is $3 for adults

    $1 Children 6 to 12, under 6 FREE

    Awesome can't wait. I will try to make it out there. Will there be a silent auction like during ICPS and can we bring our own plants?

    I'm not sure if there's a silent auction planned or not. Anyone is welcome to bring their plants to show off. It's the same basic set up as the ICPS show, usually a row of "show plants" up the middle only it's in a greenhouse at the botanical garden.

    Ok cool thanks, I remember there was some type of registry thing for plants we were bringing so that they could make labels.
