Photo's galore!

It's been a while since I've added a bunch of photos to this blog, so here's my collection of photos from both greenhouses as of May 2014:

The first plant I have grown from seed

Seed's for VFT 'Shark Tooth' form

Flower from a Cobra Lily

The 'B52' crew :D

Nice to see one of my Sundews catch a good sized fly

Spot the spider!

A picture of a Sundew that ISN'T a macro? I must be mad!

Killer Pitcher Plant?? Not quite.....

People often ask me if my plants are capable of eating people. It's asked in humour of course, but often I can almost sense a slight but of uncertainty/fear when they ask :P

My biggest plant is nearly 1 metre tall. I decided to position it on top of my water-butt and take a low angle photo. I like how it makes it look taller than my house :D

We're going liiiiiiiive!

Today is a glorious day.

Ok, its not actually cause it is raining outside, but it is good because very soon, this weekend infact, my business will start up. This is good, because it's been something I've been preparing for for over a year.

After spending so long as a child looking everywhere for even one carnivorous plant, I now find myself in a position whereby I have a couple of hundred to sell. I am starting off locally first. People who live in the area. Friends. Friends of friends etc. Then all being well, I hope to go nationally so I can supply people from all over the country. 'tis all about spreading the happiness and intrigue!

If you want to check out my site, go to This will provide more information about the plant's I am selling, as well as nice photos (if I do say so myself!), videos of the plants, frequently asked questions, and an introduction to how they all work.

If you want to read my ramblings in 140 characters or less, go to @plantsthateat on twitter. In the meantime, here's a nice macro of  a Sundew:
