Hi my name is Wes and in this video series I’m going to be presenting how to care for carnivorous plants. If you want to know more about our plants you can visit us at Equilibriocarnivorousplants.com. First I would just like to start off by showing you a few different types of carnivorous plants. Here we have Sundews, these can be easily identified by their sticky, dew-like substance that they have on their leaves. Sundews come in several different varieties, here we have a smaller rosette shaped Sundew and over here we have obviously taller, thin-leafed Sundews. Here we have plants that are called Butterworts or Pinguiculas, these have another also small, low-line, flat leaves in a rosette shape. Butterworts come in a lot of different varieties, a lot of different colors as you can see here these light green and red plants. Also, this is a Butterwort as well, quite a large plant, different from these two. Over here we have the four different varieties of pitcher plants, these are the North American Pitcher Plants, we can identify them by the fact that they have long trumpet like structures for pitchers. This here is the Australian Pitcher Plant the Cephalotus, a very low lying, smaller plant with smaller pitcher structures here. This over here is the South American Pitcher Plant, the Heliamphora and here we have the Tropical Pitcher Plant, the Nepenthes and this can easily be identified by the fact that the pitchers grow off the stalks of the leaves here. Here we have the Utricularia or the Bladderwort with nice flowers and small leaves, actually each one of these leaves is an individual plant. Here we have the Genlisea or the corkscrew plant and over here we have the Venus Flytrap.
