About The Owner

Domonick Gravine

Since a child, I have always had a natural attraction to nature, especially plants. I grew up in Pennsylvania, where I came across my first carnivorous plants. I was shopping at Home Depot with my mom and we cam across some venus flytraps in the garden center.  I thought it was so cool plants could actually eat bugs! While sorting through them to pick the best one, I came across a plant that was different than the others, a Nepenthes!  It drove my curiosity and I bought it. When I got home I web-searched the name on the pot, Nepenthes ventricosa. The results blew me away!!!

I started collecting them shortly after and my obsession has been growing for almost 20 years now. These plants are beautiful works of art created by nature and they never seise to amaze me.  After visiting Borneo, to see them in their native habitat and  visit the best nepenthes nursery in the world, Exotica Plants, I decided to become RedLeaf Exotics.
