General Description
 
King Henry is a new cultivar. It's produces upright yellow traps. The mouths of the traps have a splash of reddish orange. It grows very vigorously and sends up multiple traps at once. We've had this variety in our collection for only a year. We've noticed that the plant produces larger than normal traps when it matures, up to 1 1/2 inches. Because of the long petioles, the leaves flop over due to the weight of the large traps. This is probably why it was called King Henry!

Plants are thriving! April 23, 2018
Reviewer: Jennifer Gulley from Brillion, WI United States  
When my 13 year old daughter wanted to order a King Henry Flytrap, I was very skeptical.   We purchased 2 plants and I am happy to report that both are thriving!  Plants are very healthy and surprisingly easy to care for.  Thank you for quality products!

Great Plant! April 16, 2018
Reviewer: Meredith Jarchow from New Richmond , WI United States  
This is my first carnivorous plant and it has been a great experience. More traps are popping up! I haven't seen it eat any bugs yet (I'm in Minnesota which is still covered in snow) but the traps look promising.
