Have you ever grown a carnivorous plant—a Venus flytrap or sundew or pitcher plant, perhaps? I bet even a lot of keen gardeners haven’t. Today’s guest is going to encourage us to change that and maybe, as a start, adopt one that you can cultivate on your windowsill even.

Kenny Coogan is a board member and education director for the International Carnivorous Plant Society. Kenny’s also author of the recent book “Florida’s Carnivorous Plants,” and he operates a carnivorous plant nursery in Florida.
