STENOPETALA is the official publication of the New Zealand Carnivorous Plant Society - a well respected and professionally produced quarterly publication available only to NZCPS members.

STENOPETALA is the result of 25 years of evolution with input from a variety of NZCPS editors which has culminated in the current format - a high quality journal full of information on a range of carnivorous plant topics. Our journal offers diverse articles ranging from fieldtrips and notification of newly discovered species to publication of cultivar descriptions and cultivation techniques for a range of carnivorous plants.

STENOPETALA provides an exchange of information on carnivorous plants, particularly in relation to New Zealand conditions and aims to increase efforts to propagate and increase the availability of carnivorous plants for all.

STENOPETALA also aims to provide a forum to enable members to get in touch with others over their particular wants and needs, plant and pollen exchanges - or simply to meet other interested growers within New Zealand.

In nearly all cases, members of the NZCPS provide the bulk of the articles. For this the editor is no doubt eternally grateful. If you would like to submit an article for publication please contact the current NZCPS Journal Editor:
