I thought those who like carnivores would enjoy seeing this. I had the fortunate experience of touring the Conservatory of flowers while in San Francisco in May of this year. As luck would have it, there was an exhibit called "Kerchomp" showing carnivarious plants! I thought of you guys and took these with you in mind. :wink: A short overview of the exhibit. Hope you enjoy!

The first pic is an overview of centerstage of carnivores. There were also venus flytraps on display, and a wide assortment of pitchers.

I was delighted to see these plants and thoroughly enjoyed the exhibit. There were also many plants as well in the main and side sections of the conservatory.

Hope you enjoyed a sampling of the exhibit!
