Dionaea muscipula "Red Dragon Flytrap"
A true American classic. Native to the coastal plains of North Carolina, this plant is often a person's first introduction into carnivorous plants. It's a small plant, rarely growing larger than 4 inches in diameter. As a US-native, this plant grows best outdoors in full sun during the growing season. In winter, it shuts down for a short rest. Growth resumes in spring.

Upon arrival, our fly trap was lovely and healthy. I purchased this as a gift for my husband and he IS SO HAPPY. Ever since transferring to its own self watering pot, it continues to thrive! Catches lots of little gnats and other insects on its own. Thank you!
Arrived in excellent condition, one month later it is doing great and eating every bug it can get it's mitts on !
A beautiful, vigorous, plant that has caught many bugs in the short time I’ve had it. I definitely recommend buying this flytrap!

Plant was bigger than I thought and doing great. They package their plants so well
Everything perfect. PLant arrived quickly, great shape, and is doing magnificently
I ordered two, and both arrived in Minnesota in perfect condition. After a few days, I could not resist feeding a dead fly to one trap, and it closed with amazing speed! My only concern is how they will make it through the winter, but I will cross that bridge when I come to it.
