Burning beauty

Create a surreal scene with the flamelike stems of ‘Sticks on Fire’ euphorbia and a container of carnivorous plants. Here, Cobra plants (Darlingtonia californica) arch over smaller Venus flytraps and pitcher plants. Finish off the display with Swiss cheese vine (Monstera obliqua), planted in a low bowl so its leaves creep out onto the table.

To grow: All of these plants can grow outside in mild climates or as houseplants in bright light. But beware: Cobra plants are finicky and need cool temperatures.
