KTKI Goes to School: Beetlebug’s CP Terrarium Project

What happens if a pre-school teacher marries a carnivorous-plant (CP) lover? The Beetlebug’s CP terrarium project!

This fun yet educational project (held on February 20th, 2010) could be the first in Indonesia. Ignatius Radityo Trihascaryo, a member of KTKI (Indonesian Carnivorous Plant Community) tells us the story of his wife, Margareta Puput Kurniawati, a teacher in Beetlebug Kiddie School in Semarang, Central Java.

The idea of involving her students in building CP terrarium came to Margareta and Radityo after a few years of dealing with his CP at home. In their garden there are many types of Cp, including tropical pitcher plant (Nepenthes), a genus of CP the greatest diversity of which occurs on Borneo and Sumatra with many endemic species.

The idea of this project is very simple. Each student is given a small glass jar, a small Nepenthes gracilis plant and of course the growing medium. It seems that pictures are better than words, so please, enjoy these photos!
