Darren Cullen’s collection of flesh-hungry flora ranges from the commonly found and produced carnivores to rare endemic plants.
“We get people travelling here to see Tasmanian carnivorous plants,” he said.
“I pick them up from Hobart Airport, drive two minutes, pull over — it’s that easy.
“We have two genera of carnivorous plants here, Drosera and Utricularia, otherwise known as sundews and bladderworts.
“You grow bladderworts for their amazing flowers as the traps are underground.”
