About Us

Predatory Plants is owned and operated by Joshua Brown, a longtime carnivorous plant hobbyist. His first experience with these fascinating plants was his 7th Grade science fair project, in which he tested the effects of a vegetarian diet on carnivorous plants by feeding cape sundews tofu. The study was a success, and since then he has always maintained a collection of assorted carnivores.

After receiving a degree in human biology from Stanford, Josh went to work for a small Silicon Valley start-up building a health-care search engine called Medstory. This start-up was bought by Microsoft, and Josh continued his work on the search engine there. Eventually, the technology behind the Medstory engine became part of Microsoft's Bing Search. After several years of working a desk-job, Josh decided it was time to try something new. What could be better than resurrecting his passion for these amazing plants?
