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!

Very impressed November 11, 2018
Reviewer: David Rude from Rancho Murieta, CA United States  
I have never tried growing Venus flytraps for some reason and I am very impressed with the quality and resilience of the two I purchased a few weeks ago.  They are thriving and growing very well.

ICPS Conference August 6, 2018
Reviewer: DANIEL WALKER from Liberty, NC United States  
I enjoyed meeting Jeff at the ICPS conference and chatting over dinner on Sunday.  The plants I have bought this year from you have all done very well.    Much success to you in the future and I hope Norma Addington does well,  I'll buy a piece in a few years, lol!
-- Best,  Dan Walker
