Driven by his own innate love of carnivorous plants, Axel came to the California Carnivores family at just 12 years old. Mentored for over a decade by Peter D'Amato and Damon Collingsworth, he has cultivated a vast knowledge and profound passion for our savage garden, having helped cultivate countless novel hybrids. Over the years Axel has learned to view these esoteric creatures in a way that showcases their ornate beauty, highlighting the uniqueness of each species and translating that vision into his photography. We are so excited to be collaborating with Axel and making his photography available to you!
"This beautiful species is most notably known for it's white top that glows like a flare in bright moon light to attract moths to their doom. The good people at California Carnivores have spent a lot of time breeding the most attractive version of this species possible. When I stumbled across this specimen my jaw dropped. What makes this one truly special is the deep dark colored veins running through the white top coupled with the beautiful pink blushed lips, and border. The darkness of the veins offer great contrast while the pink blush gives the whole plant a softer look. A true stunner." - Axel
