About The Owner

Domonick Gravine

Since age 13, I’ve always had a natural attraction to nature, especially plants. I grew up in Pennsylvania, where I came across my first carnivorous plants. While shopping at Home Depot with my mom, we came across some venus flytraps.  I thought it was so cool that plants could actually eat bugs! While sorting through them to pick the best one, I came across a Nepenthes! It peaked my curiosity and I bought it. When I got home, I web-searched the name on the pot, Nepenthes ventricosa. That google search changed my life!

I started collecting Nepenthes 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 visiting  Exotica Plants, I was inspired to turn my passion into a career. That is how Redleaf Exotics was born. My best friend, Gerald Brady and I now run the nursery full time.
