can I get more information about carnivorous plants?
There are several
societies around the globe where enthusiasts of carnivorous plants
joined together to share their experiences with carnivorous plants.
Often there exists a society newsletter with articles about different
species, field trips or local activities.
In Germany the Gesellschaft
fŘr Fleischfressende Pflanzen (G.F.P.) is a carnivorous plant
society founded in 1984 by a group of CP growers. Today there are more
than 800 members not only from German speaking countries. 2 to 3 times
a year a society's newsletter is published under the name "Das
Taublatt". There is an annual meeting of the society members
with a plant sale.
A more international
society dedicated to carnivorous plants is the International
Carnivorous Plant Society located in the USA. Its publication
is named "Carnivorous Plant Newsletter" where you
can find more scientific articles concerning CP's.
