The 18th Annual Fall Carnivorous Plant Show
Sponsored by the New England Carnivorous Plant Society
The award winning New England Carnivorous Plant Society (NECPS) will again be hosting its Fall Carnivorous Plant Show at TOWER HILL BOTANIC GARDEN. Plant lovers and all those who enjoy something different will be able to get up close to hundreds of carnivorous plants exhibited by the members of the NECPS. Featured plants will include pitcher plants from Malaysia with traps the size of softballs that are capable of eating lizards and mice. There will also be sundews from Australia ranging from the size of a dime to 12+ inches high and the ever-popular Venus Fly trap. For you native plant lovers, NECPS will also display carnivorous plants that grow locally in Massachusetts and throughout New England.
This is the largest collection of carnivorous plants displayed yearly on the east coast and at Tower Hill Botanic Garden.
Over 300 plants are scheduled to be on display!
Free seminars on growing and feeding carnivorous plants will be offered!
Lots of opportunities for photographers!
Visit the Venus Fly Trap feeding area where you can observe up close how these plants devour insects. Plants and growing accessories will be available for purchase for both novice and experienced growers from carnivorous plant vendors and the NECPS. Society members will be present both days to explain how the plants feed, what they eat, where they live, and how they can be grown and enjoyed at home.

In the past, Tower Hill Botanic Gardens membership and/or NECPS membership was valid to enter the NECPS Annual show for free. However, because the parking space at TH is currently limited due to the construction, they need to control the max capacity of the premise. I have been notified that any NECPS society members who would like to attend but are not working in the show will have to purchase general admission tickets at their regular prices. If they are Tower Hill members, they will be able to reserve a ticket for free (they still need to reserve a ticket in advance). Any NECPS members who are working in the show will not need to reserve a general admission ticket and will be granted free entry on your set-up and show days.
We are very sorry about this change. Hopefully it will get back to normal next year. If you are a NECPS member, and would like to work in the show, please let Shaun Montminy, our membership secretary know @
. He will put your name on the working member list to notify TH.
