The Sinister Beauty of Carnivorous Plants portrays the alluring nature of carnivorous plants in a collection of intense photography. Included is information on the cultivation requirements used for growing these fantastic specimens, the carnivorous plants native to the authors home region on Long Island and the threats to the plants’ natural habitats and the conservation organizations that are working to protect them.
The presentation will include many of the finest images seen in the book, and the author will go further in depth about the material, to provide a greater understanding of this wonderfully bizarre subject. Matthew M. Kaelin will also bring some plant specimens for the audience to admire.
