And who knows, if you were able to find your child’s mind, perhaps you’ll leave with a cannibal tree plantlet…
In search of the canibal tree…
The discoveries of unknown lands in the heyday of precolonial explorations fueled the collective unconscious of the White Man’s many myths and fantasies. Among these, the cannibal tree, supposed to swallow half a dozen fierce warriors afraid, is one of the most powerful. It has survived the ages to lurk in the background in the world of carnivorous plants. That’s why we made it the « totem » of our carnivorous garden.
