Savage Gardens is a traveling exhibition that is making its first ever appearance in San Diego. The San Diego Botanic Garden is hosting “The Real and Imaginary World of Carnivorous Plants” until October. It is incredible how the 8,000 square foot conservatory has been transformed into a bog. We plan to make multiple visits because most of the bug eating plants are inconspicuous, so they are easy to miss. Not everything needs a trained eye to observe, there is also a walk-in pitcher plant and an interactive Venus flytrap. It is fun for all ages. Carnivorous plants are an example of mother nature at her darkest, plants have evolved to lure insects to their demise, absorbing their nutrients.
