Dionaea muscipula King Henry Flytrap

(144 reviews)

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!

This batch are divisions from a 10-year old colony that we divided in spring. You can watch us divide the colony on our YouTube channel.

    My flytrap arrived not fully dormant and I was able to see its' lovely color. It is supposed to be acclimated to outdoor living, but would it like to be kept in my sunny kitchen window? Thank you for all my wonderful plants that I have purchased from you through the years.

    Great plants

    Posted by Kerry S. on May 29, 2020

    These plants came in great condition and have continued to do well after planting. I have one in a bathtub garden and one in a water dish on the back porch. These are the best flytraps I have ever bought and I have purchased many. I also purchased the beginners guide to carnivorous plants which is easy to read and has alot of great information.
