Dionaea muscipula "Venus Flytrap"

(56 reviews) Write a Review
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.

    I highly recommend ordering from this company. I live in Florida and the plant arrived perfectly packaged and undamaged. The instructions or removing the plant from the packaging and taking care of the plant were very clear and informative. I believe it’s been about a month since I’ve received my plant and it’s doing very well.

    Flytraps arrived pretty quickly and they were beautiful. My 5 year old son was thrilled!! We have had such fun this past month watching them grow and “catch” bugs.

    I had been looking for one of these for a while and couldn’t find a place that had nice healthy Venus fly traps. This arrived packaged well with no damage to the plant at all. Was still moist and plant arrived very healthy. Me and my boyfriend love to check on it outside and see which trap has a fly in it! Can’t wait to see how it grows!

    Never Disappointed

    First, I am enjoying the life of my plant! It arrived well packaged and it is currently thriving on rain water and sunlight. I have purchased from this company before and I have never been disappointed. I have purchased plants for a science lab and the students were excited to see the plants every time. Great plants to purchase for virtual learning. They will not disappoint!
