International Carnivorous Plant Society

ICPS Store and Seed Bank

The ICPS Store and Seed Bank are on our Membership Website.

The Seed Bank is a member-only seed exchange. To order seed from the Seed Bank, you must be a current member of the International Carnivorous Plant Society and log into the membership website.


The purpose of the Seed Bank is to enhance members understanding and enjoyment of carnivorous plants. The ICPS does not sell seed commercially. The prices charged do not reflect the commercial value of the seed.

Seeds of selected varieties are available free to teachers for use in the classroom and to scientists and conservation organizations. Please contact the Seed Bank manager for more information.

We ship internationally

International buyers must know and understand the import regulations for their countries. The International Carnivorous Plant Society relies on its members to inform the society of country-specific regulations so we can help keep members in each country informed. Members are encouraged to contact the ICPS Store manager with country-specific import requirements.

Recent changes in shipping regulations have made it difficult to ship to certain countries. We cannot ship anything to countries that require prepaid VAT or Duty. This includes EU countries and Great Britain. Shipments to Canada that are valued CA$20 and over are subject to duty payable by the recipient to receive the shipment. 

If your country requires a phytosanitary certificate for imported seeds, we are not able to provide one at this time and cannot ship seeds to countries where we know the certificate is required.  

Seed Use Rules

The rules are to make access fair to the other 1200 ICPS members who also can order seeds.
