Carnivorous Plants - Lacey Jarrell - Klamath Basin Chapter Meeting

  • November 05, 2015
  • 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
  • DOW 251 (Dow Center for Health Professions) on the OIT campus.

Oregon is home to four genera of carnivorous plants: Drosera (sundew), Utricularia (bladderwort), Pinguicula (butterwort) and Darlingtonia (cobra lily).

Learn about Oregon’s carnivorous plants and their appetite for insects at the Klamath Basin Chapter NPSO November meeting. Plant enthusiast and speaker Lacey Jarrell will explore carnivorous plant habitat, why the plants evolved to supplement their diets with insects, and how their trap mechanisms work. The talk will focus on Southern Oregon plants and provide an introduction to Venus flytraps, North and South American pitcher plants and tropical Nepenthes pitcher plants.

Lacey is a hobby carnivorous plant grower who has been growing CPs for more than five years.
