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!
