Mid-Atlantic Carnivorous Plant Society


Founded in January 2017, MACPS is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting scientific knowledge, education, and general awareness of carnivorous plants and their cultivation. We hold four meetings a year throughout PA, MD, VA, WV, DE, NJ, NY, and Washington, D.C., and also go on field trips.

Triffid – Triffidus celestus


Triffidus celestus is an ambulatory, highly venomous carnivorous plant with unknown origins that can grow to an average height of 7 feet but has been sighted at heights exceeding 10 feet. A firm stalk, or stem, with sprays of leathery green leaves and three accompanying small sticks will grow up from a woody bole in the ground.
