Great book

If you love Carnies, you'll love this book. Detailed information on all the different species. Though expensive it's worth the money. Highly recommended

Ryan Capazorio
What a great experience

My son was interested in getting a carnivorous plant. I came across Cultivo Carnivores and I’m so glad I did. I made an appointment to see them. What an amazing time. Therese was so helpful she didn’t just sell a product she imparted knowledge and passion to not only me but to my son. I would highly recommend taking the time to meet with them. Thank you for what you guys did. We will definitely be back.

  • Just a quick heads-up: since plants are natural products, you might notice some slight variations when unboxing your plants
  • We do our best to make sure the plants you receive look like the ones in the photos, but keep in mind that seasons change and plants grow. Some leaves might fall off, new ones might sprout, and the plants may look a bit different over time
  • 99% of what we sell are one-of-a-kind collector items, so you will receive the exact plant pictured. The labels are spot on, so even if the plant looks a bit different, we 100% guarantee it's the real deal. Also, all the photos you see are of our own plants unless we mention otherwise. We update images occasionally to keep things fresh. If you want to see updated pictures before you buy, just let us know – we're happy to help!
