A Hobby Gone Rouge


 Hi folks, my name is Jared and welcome to my Untamed Plantz website! If you're reading this, then you and I probably have one thing in common...we're fascinated with carnivorous plants. I've always loved growing plants. In fact, I can remember helping my dad work in our garden when I was just a small boy. But my love for carnivorous plants, or CP's for short, didn't come until just a few years ago.

It all started when my son had to do a school project on organisms that had unusual adaptations for their environment. The idea to use a Venus flytrap came to my mind when we saw some for sale in our local grocery store. Needless to say, I brought a flytrap home and it quickly became part of our family. The little guy thrived in our back yard, so I began to wonder if I could grow more of these bug eating plants. Within a couple of months I had a small collection of sarracenia pitcher plants, flytraps, and sundews. And so my obsession began.

Today, I have a small greenhouse that I built myself from some old windows, some raised garden beds, and a bog garden surrounding a small fish pond. And you guessed it!!! They are all filled with CP's! I love growing these things so much that I've quickly outgrown my growing space, so I thought it was a good time to share this hobby with my community and folks like you. So take a look around and enjoy!

In early 2022, my wife and I made a big decision to move to her home town in Whitley City, KY. So the plants came along with us.  I've built a greenhouse off one side of our garage.  With my new setup, I have much more room for growing seedling than before the move.  Below are some pictures.
