Dionaea muscipula "King Henry Flytrap"

This variety of flytrap 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. It also 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!

    King Henry Flytrap

    Posted by Rebecca Boisvert on April 23, 2020

    This plant was in healthy condition when it arrived AND has remained that way under my care. I ‘love’ all of my flytraps purchased from Sarracenia. I strongly recommend Sarracenia for plant purchases.
