ABOUT JOZI CARNIVORES
Jozi Carnivores is a dedicated carnivorous plant nursery situated in Sandton. We grow a range of carnivorous plants including Venus flytraps (Dionaea), American Trumpet Pitcher Plants (Sarracenia), Sundews (Drosera), Tropical Pitcher Plants (Nepenthes), Bladderworts (Utricularia), Butterworts (Pinguicula) and more. Our plants are of the highest quality and thrive on the insects in the area that feed and pollinate them. None of the plants we sell have been collected from the wild and we strongly oppose this practice. Our plants are propagated via tissue culture, root division, from seed or purchased from reputable nurseries.
Jozi Carnivores aims to educate the public on the many different types of carnivorous plants that occur throughout the world and demonstrate their suitability to the South African environment. We are developing an educational programme for schools using carnivorous plants as a catalyst to promote water conservation and environmental protection.
Most carnivorous plants can be categorised under four genera: Flytraps (Dionae muscipula), Tropical Pitchers (Nepenthes), North American Pitchers (Sarracenia) and Sundews (Drosera).Within each category, there are plenty of subspecies, some that occur naturally and others that are natural or purposefully bred cultivars. Jozi Carnivores stocks a variety of species from each of these plants groups. Plants range from seedling through to well-established adult plants and price range from R60 to R250 depending on the age, size and availability of a particular species.
