Pearce supplies seed for kits to Suttons, Thompson & Morgan, the Eden Project and others, and now hopes to expand into the gift market at theme parks and zoos.
The producer found hoverfly pollination too "hit and miss" so experimented with Certis using bumble bees and will produce a record 200,000 seeds this year. In 2010, the grower produced just 60,000 after the natural pollinator, the hoverfly, arrived after flowering.
Pearce said: "I decided I needed more control and researched whether bees can do this. It's worked a treat." He said the cost of Venus Fly Traps from Holland was increasing, making growing from seed more attractive. He added that seed from overseas can be less fresh than UK seed, making it more difficult to germinate.
Certis's Martin Donnelly said: "It is unlikely this has been done before on carnivorous plants."
