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.
The 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.
The 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.
