Carnivorous Plants in Mumbai!!!!

A city obsessed with murdering its greens...as a nursery we decided to give them a fair chance for them to fight back...so here they are the awesomely deadly pitcher plants!!! These little hanging guys are not as innocent as they sound...the highly evolved carnivorous plants have mastered the art of survival in the deadliest terrains across the world..so mumbai should be a piece of cake for this insect predator.
Troubled my mosquitoes...roaches,lizards,rain insects....look no further than this little plant...this plant is one of the most sophisticated digestive mechanisms in the plant kingdom inside the pitcher it has little hair with digestive enzymes ready to devour its prey...but don't worry as deadly as they sound they are pretty much harmless to kids and inquisitive humans alike!
No now u don't have to light that mosquito coil or put on some silly cream to save urself from getting bitten...keep this plant by ur window side and see it go nuts eating the various insects the city has to offer....these rarest of rare beauties are only available with us at Vriksha .

taking care of these guys is probably the easiest thing to do...as they pretty much sustain themselves with all the insects they eat!but here are some basic care tips to keep in mind
1)never keep them out in the blaring afternoon sun...
2)always keep the soil moist
3)it likes to be around other plants...ferns especially
4))you don't need to catch insects and feed them...they are well capable of doing that themselves
5)bore well water is a strict no no...
6)don't waste your money on chemical/organic fertilizers these guys don't need em

@ rs 2000 we only get 15 every month and sell out in the 1st week so get your move on to get your personal natural insect disposal system
