Cool Hunting Video Presents: California Carnivores

Follow our journey through a bizarre world of hungry plants at North America's largest carnivorous plant nursery

by Cool Hunting Video in Culture on 06 April 2012

In our latest video we trekked out into the beautiful farmland outside Sebastopol, California to visit California Carnivores, North America's largest carnivorous plant nursery. We spoke with founder Peter D'Amato about his personal history with these hungry plants, their cultural significance and what it takes to raise up fantastical plants from seed. Taking in the active plant life, we watched Venus Flytraps chowing down and a got a peak inside the stomach of an American Pitcher Plant.
