Our carnivorous plants

They are small wonders of nature: plants that 'catch' insects, ants and spiders and then digest them. The insects serve as food for the plant, in addition to the nutrients the roots already extract from the soil. Carnivorous plants get their 'meal' in different ways. An adhesive substance on the plant helps prevent insects that come into contact with it from being released.

Laguna has four of the most popular carnivorous plants in its range: Sarracenia, Dionaea, Drosera and Nepenthes. The species owe their popularity primarily to their unique appearances. Officially, carnivorous plants belong to flowering plants. They can also flower, but are usually supplied without flowers. Carnivorous plants are available year-round. Care is simple.

Supplied in three different pot sizes
5.5 - 8.5 - 12 cm to garden centres, florists and supermarkets.
Laguna also supplies many different arrangements in glass and terracotta.


The Sarracenis is a pitcher plant from North America. The leaves have a tubular shape. The nectar concealed in the top of the plant's cups entices insects to investigate. Because the top of the leaf is very slippery, the insects naturally slide down inside, to be digested. They disappear further and further into the calyx. The fine hairs on the leaves also make escaping a mission impossible.


The Dionaea is better known as ‘the Venus flytrap’. That trap is found at the end of each 5 cm leaf. The leaf trap has hairs that act as 'sensors' the moment a fly, ant, or spider comes into contact with the plant. The trap snaps shut and the prey cannot escape. After about 10 days, the trap opens again and the plant is again ready for use. The sun gives the inside of the leaf a beautiful dark red glow.


The carnivorous Drosera takes its name from the Greek word 'drosos', meaning dew. A substance that resembles dew adheres to the little hairs on the plant's leaves. The Drosera uses this to catch mosquitoes, which stick to the leaves. When the mosquito has nowhere else to go, the leaf envelops the entire prey. The plant is found worldwide, including in the Netherlands. It is also
a carnivorous plant that survives in mild winters.


The Nepenthes is also known as the 'cup plant' because of its beautifully shaped pitchers. They are actually catching cups, which are filled with nectar and have a slippery surface. Pitcher plants can grow up to 2 metres tall in the wild. The cups are then as big as 50 cm and can even digest rats. Pitcher plants have been found in the wild at altitudes of some 3,000 metres.
