The bulk of Kew's carnivorous plant collection is held behind-the-scenes. However, an interesting group can be viewed by the public in a dedicated zone inside the Princess of Wales Conservatory.
These huge aquatic plants are native to tropical South America.
The jade vine (Strongylodon macrobotrys) is a member of the pea and bean family, and is best known for its hanging stems of jade-green flowers.
One of the most spectacular plants to be found in the wet tropics zone of the Princess of Wales Conservatory at Kew Gardens is the titan arum.
