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.

The color is deep maroon and the plant seems happy, and it's fast asleep for winter—as it should be!
