The Art of Growing Pitcher Plants

(A Gardening Workshop)

20 Mar 2014 - 31 May 2014  

Carnivorous plants never fail to fascinate. Of the various genera of carnivorous plants, Nepenthes, which are commonly called tropical pitcher plants, are the easier ones for the beginner to try his hands on growing. Found in nutrient-impoverished soils in the Malay Archipelago, these plants feature a clever plant adaptation used to obtain adequate nutrients by producing the characteristic pitchers, which are actually the true leaves of the plant. Join us in this workshop to learn more about different types of pitcher plants and how you can grow and display them at home.


This workshop is suitable for:

-       Gardening enthusiasts who would like to learn more about pitcher plants

-       Tertiary students and adult hobbyists

-       Beginners with no background in gardening  


Date                 :  31 May 2014, Saturday
Time                 : 10:00am – 1:00pm 
Fee                   : $50.00 per participant (includes all materials)
Location           : Botany Centre, Tanglin Core of Singapore Botanic Gardens
