The Return of the Carnivorous Plants

At the Conservatory of Flower they have the world's largest Venus flytrap and Asian Pitcher. The Conservatory of Flower has a exhibit called Chomps.

You can see hundreds of carnivorous plants at the Big Bog. The Big Bog is a swampy paradise for the meat-eating plants like a Venus flytrap. Most of the plants lack nutrients because the soil is so poor. At the Conservatory of Flower, they have the Bladderworts, the largest group of plants at the Conservatory of Flower with over 200 species.

The Conservatory of Flower location is at Golden Gate park, and it costs $7.00 for adults, $5.00 for youth ages 12-17, Seniors age 65 & over, and College Students with ID,$2.00 for Children ages 5-11. It is free for Children ages 4 and under,and the Conservatory of Flower was built at 1878.
