Carnivorous Plant Talk and Sale

Learn about Florida’s endemic carnivorous plants! Florida has dozens of native species of carnivorous plants––more than any other state in the country. These plants use appealing scents, leaves, and sticky fluids to trap and imprison insects. Learn the evolution, people, and natural history of this area to discover why Florida is a hotspot of carnivorous plants.

Presented by Kenny Coogan, author of the book “Florida’s Carnivorous Plants”.
BONUS: Kenny’s book “Florida’s Carnivorous Plants” and a selection of carnivorous plants will be available for purchase after the talk! He will have an array of carnivorous plants including pitcher plants, venus flytraps, sundews, butterworts including both Florida natives and exotic collector items.
