Carnivorous plants on stamps

Recommended Posts

I finally managed to pick up this stamp after years of searching for it. It is part of a set of poster stamps, and was not an official postage stamp, but a Cinderella. I don't know when they were issued, but from the condition of the stamps I would guess that they're 10-20 years old, perhaps more.

The actual stamp I was after shows a rather badly drawn Dionaea muscipula

Another set of stamps issued by St Vincent & Grenadines, depicting Carnivorous plants. Obviously not native to the area. Note also that the N. ampullaria has been labelled as N. sanguinea...

Don't know much about these other than that they are French and have a 2014 publication date. Not postage stamps, obviously, but most likely someone's custom-made souvenir stamps. Displaying verious spesies of nepenthes, Pinguicula and Drosera...
