General Description
 
A cultivated variety that has short, triangular teeth. The leaves tend to grow upright during the growing season. Because of its shorter teeth, It tends to capture insects by their heads!
Plants You Receive
Your plant will be shipped potted in a 3-inch pot. It will reach flowering maturity within 1-2 growing seasons.

The current batch was forced from winter dormancy early in a greenhouse to prep them for a local garden show that has since been cancelled. The plants have already been acclimated for outdoor growing. However, pay attention for a late season frost in your region.

All cold hardy plants are grown outdoors at our nursery in Oregon and experience the changes of the seasons. Care instructions are provided.

Please watch the monthly video podcast for examples of how your plant may look at this time of the year and important growing tips for the season.

5 of 5 LOVE your plants... April 23, 2020
Reviewer: Mark Georgio from Woonsocket, RI United States  
I purchased a few pitcher plants years ago and I recently just built a indoor greenhouse. So I decided to order the plants that I Fell in love with from the same people. Plants came in fast and all bundled up, they were not dried out and looked great. After a few weeks in the greenhouse, They are in Heaven!   Thank You so much guys!!!! Will be buying more soon.

5 of 5 Venus Flytraps January 13, 2020
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Missouri, United States  
I teach 5th grade in Ferguson, MO. I thought acquiring a Venus flytrap as our class pet would be an awesome wrap up for our life science unit! Students loved the plant so much! Wanted to name it but they couldn’t reach a consensus ...sooooo they decided to cast secret ballots for either a girl (Venus) or boy (Vincent). After a gender reveal with balloons....it’s a boy! Vincent Valentine!

Plant appears to be hardy and thriving! Thank you for our Vincent!
