US (CA): Carnivorous plants growing in popularity

Half Moon Bay native Joshua Brown has been collecting carnivorous plants since seventh-grade. In college, the collection lived in a terrarium under his dorm-room bed.

The hobby eventually led to a mail-order nursery business and, in July, Brown opened his first brick-and-mortar carnivorous plants store in his hometown at 12511 San Mateo Road on the Pastorino Farms strip of nurseries.

Predatory Plants will celebrate a grand opening in late October — the shop will offer a variety of family-friendly activities and events from Oct. 26 to Nov. 4 — and Brown has big plans for the space and his business moving forward.

“Business is excellent and it’s been expanding incredibly quickly,” he said, adding that interest in carnivorous plants is also growing around the country, especially with young people.
