Lidless Freaks

Carnivorous plants are in a category of their own, and within this special syndicate of bizarre botanical badassery there are those plants that are, well… just plain freaks. I’m talking about some of these lidless ones. Some may even apply the adjective¬†“fugly to these curiosities. But hey – to me, they’re beautiful in their own unconventional way. Keep it freaky.

  1. Not 100% sold on the flava, but ‘Bris’ is definitely to my taste!

  2. Yuck! No place in my collection for these!

    On the other hand I appreciate some people hate psitt hybrids, but I like them

  3. Its like growing giant colourful Heliamphora, so has appeal :)

  4. DESTROY them all!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Wow, I’m feeling the love for the lidless monstrosities! :) I like what Steve said – it does remind me of growing colorful Heliamphora!

    LOL! Happy growing everyone!

    ‘Bris’ just made my list of Top Ten Sarracenia names.

  7. I would normally find the name Bris vulgar and disgraceful for a Sarracenia and still do….but seeing as I dislike this plant in particular it seems fitting.
