Who needs Halloween decorations when nature provides such bizarre and beautiful creations? Display these flowers and plants to add a little haunt to your house this season...if you dare
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.
