Welcome to my web site!


I started growing and studying ant-plants seriously in the year 2001.  My intention is to use this site to share what I have learned and grown while at the same time learning more.


Specifically these are some of the things I will be doing here:

  • Post information on the culture and identification of these interesting plants. There is not much of this basic information available for people just starting out with ant-plants.
  • Share my translations of the ant-plant drawings of the great Italian 

     naturalist Odaordo Beccari.  His drawing are on this site now.

  • Sell and trade plants during the warmer months of the year. ( I live in Michigan, USA)  Sorry, I cannot ship internationaly.  I sell ant-plants on eBay when it is warm enough to ship plants, roughly sometime in April to sometime in October most years.  I sell on ebay as " igrowantplants ".
  • Publish some articles that I and others have written about the naming and culture of ant-plants

I hope you will find things on this site of interest and value to you.
