General Description
 
This flytrap features red leaves and traps. Young plants are bright red throughout. As the plant matures, it turns maroon with a green margin along the edge of the traps.

This variety tends to be slightly temperamental when its roots are disturbed during the growing season. It's best to repot this plant in early season or while it's dormant.

In winter, this variety will drop all of its leaves, leaving nothing to show. In summer, it will require lots of sunlight to maintain its red color.

Red Dragon is best suited for those who are successful growing the more common forms of flytrap.

5 of 5 Venus Fly Trap May 28, 2020
Reviewer: Paulina Begay from Columbia, SC United States  
The Venus Flytrap that I purchased was packaged perfectly! It looked like the box may have fallen or be a little bit squished on the way here but even then the plant was packaged so well that it wasn’t damaged at all! I realized was much much smaller than I thought it was going to be, with only three little traps. It quickly started to grow more and more traps and it is so cool to see them grow. I purchased this thinking it would keep flies out of the kitchen but after doing more research i realized it was going to do that. It is still really cool to see a new trap sprouting almost every week. Last night one of the traps finally caught a fly and it was very exciting to wake up to. Everyone in the house loves it. The price of this Venus fly trap was also great, i found it on here for $14 which really helped with my decision to make the purchase!

5 of 5 Flytrap May 25, 2020
Reviewer: Mary St. Pierre from Mobridge, SD United States  
This was actually a birthday present for my 6 year old son. When it arrived it was in excellent condition despite the box having a huge ding in one of the corners. I read him the instructions and he's been doing amazing at caring for it. His only complaint (even after explanation) is it's not big enough to eat the spiders yet 🤭.
