Carnivorous Plants and Sundews
on the Atherton Tablelands near Cairns

I plan to be propagating most of these plants shown in the below photographs soon and then they will be available for sale.

Please see more information about the plants I have for sale on the main page.

Unlike other carnivorous plants sold elsewhere, these have a unique self watering wick system which means easy care. It reduces the risk of the plants drying out and enables optimum growth.  I am seeking distributors to sell the plants. 

I can also sell them directly to the end user. 


Unfortunately carnivorous plants are found in fewer areas now due to damage to the environment. Habitat loss, tree clearing, fertilizer runoff, weeds and wild pigs are causing problems. Locations of plants could be compared to the reports years ago to see how populations change. We may be able to find out why they have disappeared from certain areas. This could encourage more people to conserve them and help us and find good ways to do so. We could encourage people to keep an eye out for them so they can take photos and record the GPS coordinates. Do you know anyone else interested that may be able to help us look for them?  If you have seen any around, please let us know where they are.

Hopefully the government can adopt a better and fairer tax system to enable more funding for research for better landcare methods and to help farmers employ better farming practices that would both help the environment and farmers. See many win-win policies here.

We are also offering carnivorous plant tours so we can show people plants growing in the wild and explain about them. Please let me know if you are interested.

Wanted


People are needed to sell and promote the plants. They do not need to buy them outright. I can freely send them some plants and they can then pay me as they sell. I am happy to negotioate commission.
