Champion plants of the Carniverous form.

Last weekend Collector’s Corner @ Gardenworld held the annual show for the Victorian Carniverous Plants Society.Apologies for at this stage not naming the growers of these two champion plants.

Heliamphora-folliculataThe Grand Champion was Heliamphora folliculata (murosipan) pictured above. Heliamphora folliculata is a species of Marsh Pitcher Plant endemic to the Aparaman group of tepuis in Venezuela. It grows on all four mountains: Aparaman Tepui, Murosipan Tepui, Tereke Tepui and Kamakeiwaran Tepui.

cephalotusThe Cephalotus first place went to this amazing terrarium planting above. Cephalotus is a genus which contains one species, Cephalotus follicularis the Australian pitcher plant, a small carnivorous pitcher plant. This is apparently a challenging plant to grow. This one is thriving.
