The Garden Thyme Podcast

Carnivorous Plants

October 25, 2021 12:23 PM
The Garden Thyme Podcast, brought to you by the University of Maryland Extension, is a monthly podcast where you can get help getting down and dirty in your garden, with timely gardening tips, information about native plants, and more! 

In this episode, we keep with our October tradition of talking about spooky plants by chatting all about carnivorous plants! Carnivorous plants are predatory flowering plants that kill animals, primarily insects, to derive nutrition from their bodies.   Fun fact: Did you know that there are 19 different species of carnivorous plants found in Maryland. This episode covers the famous Venus flytraps (~2:57 ), native pitcher plants (~9:17), bladderworts(~15:28 ), and and the cutest of all carnivorous plants, the sundew (~19:54 ). 

  • Native Plant of the Month (Wax myrtle) at  ~23:41
  • Bug of the Month ( American Burying Beetle)  at ~ 27:54
  • Garden Tips of the Month at ~ 33:30
