Dionaea muscipula "Red Sawtooth Flytrap"

(16 reviews) Write a Review
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 grows much slower. 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.

    I am very pleased with my recent order. The plants arrived very quickly (especially considering they came from the other side of the country). They were nice sized plants well packed and in good shape. The instruction sheets were easy to understand and appreciated. All plants are growing well.

    Well worth the money

    Not only different looking for other Flytraps, but it's fantastic RED and saw teeth really keeps your attention when it catches a fly. It seems to ... gum its catch. LOL

    Nice little fly trap

    The sawtooth is quite unique that it doesn't have those long teeth. I actually thought it wouldn't be able to catch anything but it does so quite well. I'm surprised. Deep red coloration is fantistic. What it lack in size it makes up for it in beautiful deep red traps. Will be buying again!
