Explore A Free Exhibition Of 25,000 Of The World’s Creepiest Carnivorous Plants

Play, Sydney / 17 February 2020

Think gardening just isn’t your thing? After this latest exhibition, you’ll want to change your tune.

For most Sydneysiders, potted plants are about as close as we come to creating our very own garden. But if you’re looking for a dose of lush inspiration (or just want to explore one of Sydney’s best free public gardens), this event is one to add to your diary. Back for another year, The Calyx at Sydney’s Royal Botanic Gardens is putting on the epic living exhibition, Plants with Bite.

Running until winter 2020, Plants with Bite is a one-of-a-kind exhibition that invites guests to experience plants as you’d never seen them before. Filled with some of the world’s hungriest and creepiest plants, the immersive exhibition showcases everything from the iconic Venus flytrap to lobsters pots, bladders and more, each ready to trap unsuspecting insects. Get up close and personal with these unique species and marvel at the wonders of the natural world in this spectacular carnivorous plant exhibition.

The exhibition space itself is worth noting too. The Calyx is one of Sydney’s most inspired exhibition spaces, boasting world-class horticulture and the largest vertical floral walls in the southern hemisphere. This impressive accolade makes The Calyx a must-see space for plant enthusiasts across the city. As one of the venue’s key annual events, Plants with Bites will treat guests to a visit designed to surprise and delight at every turn. Carefully curated by the team of passionate horticulturalists at The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, the event is one not to be missed. The best part? Entry is FREE (with a donation of $5 or more encouraged).
