Wholesale Orders


Wholesale Customers: Please contact us to obtain our current wholesale availability for carnivorous plants. North American species require a winter dormancy period & are not usually 'retail-ready' during the winter months.

Local Sales


Our nursery & greenhouses are open to the public on weekends only from early spring until mid-autumn. During the winter months, our tropical greenhouse is open for retail sales by appointment.  

Internet Retail Sales


As we are primarily a wholesale greenhouse operation, we do not ship retail orders. For retail orders of carnivorous plants within Canada, we suggest

With the exception of Antarctica, carnivorous plants are indigenous to every continent on earth. Their habitats range from the steamy jungles of Borneo to the chilly bogs of northern Canada. Despite this wide variation in climate and geographical location, the habitats of carnivorous plants often exhibit obvious similarities. Typically, the soil of a carnivorous plant habitat is nutrient-poor. These plants have adapted to this environment by using insects and other creatures as their main source of nutrients (in addition to photosynthesis).

An outdoor Carnivorous Plant bog


Hawaiian Botanicals constructed a 10' x 10' carnivorous plant bog as our display garden at the 2005 Vancouver Garden Show. Concrete retaining wall blocks provided support for the EPDM rubber liner. The bog was filled with peat moss & top-dressed with a layer of live sphagnum moss. Click on the link below to view photos & the accompanying 'Fractured Fairy Tale'.
