Plants with Bite tells the story of the captivating and bizarre world of carnivorousplants. As fascinating as they are horrifying, these plants are truly a miracle of evolution. Sun, soil and sky – this is all most plants need to survive. Yet carnivorous plants can thrive in inhospitable environments by luring, trapping, killing and digesting insects. At this free floral display you’ll get to see the iconic Venus flytrap: an example of a ‘snap trap’. You can also observe the ‘pitfall’, ‘flypaper’, ‘lobster-pot’ and ‘bladder’ styles of traps. Combining botany with hands-on activities, Plants with Bite showcases these fascinating plants while bringing awareness to the ways in which many species are currently under threat due to habitat loss. Curated by horticulturalists at The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, this is the largest vertical floral wall in the southern hemisphere.
