Once people learn about carnivorous plants, they often want to raise them in their backyards. By purchasing plants from reputable nurseries, you can ensure that these valuable plants are not being poached from the wild, as many species are now threatened or endangered due to pilfering and habitat loss. The International Carnivorous Plant Society is a decades old organization of horticulturist, scientists and educators. The non-profit organization hosts conferences, publishes scientific-rich newsletters, and donates to conservation efforts relating to carnivorous plants.
Kenny Coogan, the educator of this TED-Ed animation, has grown and sold carnivorous plants for several years. Visit his website to learn more about caring for carnivorous plants in your home.
