Excellent service and product. Our flytrap arrived safely through the mail and is thriving!
Dionaea muscipula King Henry Flytrap [DORMANT]
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!

Sunlight: Full sun during the growing season.

All plants are great!
This plant was in healthy condition when it arrived AND has remained that way under my care. I â€˜loveâ€™ all of my flytraps purchased from Sarracenia. I strongly recommend Sarracenia for plant purchases.
Arrived quickly and packed very well. Unpack and placed in bell Jar, with old grow light. Now has three new shuts and green as emerald islands, grows very fast. Instruction are very good, and everyone should read them.
I purchased a King Henry Flytrap for my son for Christmas. I received an excellent specimen in great condition in a timely manner. I highly recommend Sarracenia Northwest.
Healthy and well packed plants arrived in excellent shape.
