Dionaea muscipula Red Dragon Flytrap [DORMANT]
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. Despite its attractive red leaves, this particular variety is temperamental. It dislikes root disturbance, and it dislikes excessive heat. (Other varieties of flytraps are much more resilient.) In winter, it will also drop all of its leaves, leaving nothing to show. The Red Dragon Flytrap is best for growers who have experience growing the more typical variety.
Type of Plant: Outdoor perennial for container growing.
Height: Up to 4 inches at maturity.
Sunlight: Full sun during the growing season. (The Red Dragon Flytrap likes full sun but dislikes excessive heat. So it's most suitable to regions with sunny yet moderate summers.)
Water: Low-mineral water (50 ppm or less).
Soil: Equal parts peat moss and perlite only.
Winter: Dormant. Minimal protection in USDA zones 7-9. Mulch in colder regions.

I would recommend it to a friend.
Really impressed with packaging!!! No dirt scattered in the box. Deep red plants, love ❤️ them!!!
My Venus flytraps arrived healthy and alive. Highly recommend this product.
Super dark red!! I can’t wait until spring so this dragon can wake up! Thank you sarracenia northwest
Good quality good to purchase
It came packed so good and perfect! It has done great and I already had a flower coming out of it, which I did snip off... but thought that was really cool! I will only buy from this company I tried 5 and this was the best!
Came in a bit delayed due to usps but the plant was packaged amazingly and in beautiful condition!
I was so surprised and happy to receive such a healthy Flytrap with large traps. In early May I had ordered this same Red Dragon flytrap from another seller and the traps were very small and haven’t grown.
So i put this plant in a big terracotta pot with a sarracenia i got from you as well. It is doing good, lately it has been really hot in California so i purchased a net cover to shade a bit when its 100F. But the plant is doing good. Do you recommend i take my other flytraps out of the black nursing pots they get hot? Thank you, very much happy planting, Sincerely, Austin
The plant arrived very healthy, and it has adjusted well to my pot. I really appreciate the service!
This plant arrive quickly and was pack very secure. After unpacking, the plant was deep healthy red. The photos don't do it justice. Thanks for an absolutely gorgeous plant!
