Battles between life and death, baffling tricks and flamboyant guises: This is what makes carnivorous plants so fascinating.

Battles
between life and death, baffling tricks and flamboyant guises: This is what
makes carnivorous plants so fascinating.

The
temporary “Killer Plants – The Green Carnivores” exhibition in the Gardens
offers visitors an insight into the gruesome beauty of these artful trappers.

With their
glittering leaves, bright colors and outlandish tentacles they entice their
prey into their traps. Once they’ve been trapped, there is no escape. The journey to famed and lesser-known carnivorous plants leads around
the globe: from tropical rainforests to swamps and peat bogs, from valleys to
high mountains.

The
temporary exhibition features all types of traps and illustrates the incredible
biodiversity of these bizarre survival artists, all enriched by living plants,
interactive experience stations and guided tours.
