General Description
The red sawtooth flytrap is a rare variant. It is red throughout, and the traps have finely serrations along the edges. Compared to some of the larger forms of flytrap, the red sawtooth flytrap is much smaller and slower growing. We've rarely seen this plant grow larger than 2-3 inches across. It's still unusual and makes a great addition to any cold hardy collection. Supply is limited.

my sawtooth. October 31, 2016
Reviewer: Corrine Murphy from Concord, CA United States  
To all those who read this.....

I have for the past 3 going on 4 years now
I have every plant alive and doing well that I have ever bought from this company.
They take care of them self all I do is make sure they have the water they need the rest is up to them and they do well starting from small little plants and needing to be divided on only their second year.
I love all the plants that I got from this company I bought a few from others but they're not the same not even close so I don't experiment any longer I stick with the best and the best is with Northwest sarracenia.

Reviewer: Robert scott from Boise, ID United States  
Love this plant, produces very small traps but they are very cool and catch a ton of smaller flys. Must have if you are a collector
