This is the largest collection of carnivorous plants displayed annually on the East Coast!

Plant lovers and all those who enjoy something different will be able to get up close to view hundreds of carnivorous plants exhibited by the members of the NECPS. There are over 750 currently recognized carnivorous and protocarnivorous plant species and many more hybrids. We strive to represent plants from each carnivorous plant genus.

Visit the Venus Fly Trap Feeding Area where you can observe up close how these plants devour insects. Attend Free Seminars on the care and cultivation of carnivorous plants. Plants and growing accessories will be available for purchase for both novice and experienced growers from respected Carnivorous Plant Vendors and the NECPS and it's members. 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.

Visitors can expect to see carnivorous plants from all over the world including carnivorous plants that grow locally throughout New England!

Hundreds of plants are scheduled to be on display! Lots of opportunities for photographers!
