I'm Jane Perrone, and I've been growing houseplants since I was a child, caring for cacti in my bedroom and growing a grapefruit from seed; filling a fishtank full of fittonias and bringing African violets back from the dead.
I chat to Peter D’Amato, founder of the nursery California Carnivores, one of world’s leading experts in venus flytraps, pitcher plants, sundews and more. And I answer a question about repotting an Anthurium.
I find out why engineers are studying the slippery qualities of Nepenthes pitchers, which creature uses a pitcher plant as a toilet, and why Stapelia flowers look mouldy with botanist Dr Chris Thorogood. And I answer a question about a droopy string of hearts plant.
