Predatory Plants

Insectivorous and parasitic plants are an anomaly in the plant world, where self-sufficiency is the norm. This class covers the more familiar pitcher plants (Sarracenia), sundews (Drosera), and dodder vines (Cuscuta) as well as lesserknown groups such as the bladderworts (Utricularia) and broom rapes (Orobanchaceae). Learn about the habitats, unusual life cycles, and curious behavior of these New England plants.

Please note: We do not make video or audio recordings of classes or programs available after the fact, because we believe education is interactive, with instructors and students building a community and culture of learning. Some programs may be recorded strictly for instructor-training purposes.
