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.

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.
This flytrap arrived quickly and looked great! It is a beautiful plant and has contained to grow well
I received both of these very well packaged and healthy. They been doing great from day one. My last ones lasted for four years until the crows dug them up.
This plant came in great condition and is flourishing! It’s amazing to just sit and watch them sometimes. They are beautiful and eating good!
I purchased this for my son who loves it! Came in good condition with clear care instructions. I had a few questions and the company replied quickly. Will be purchasing from them again!
The plants arrived in beautiful conditions and packed well. Surprised at how big they already were. My plants seem to be getting comfortable with their new environment and locations. They have been in my seeding area under grow lights all day and I have only watered with tap water. I know it’s says not to but our water here is not hard and all my house plants love it too. Only one or two traps have died back and they are munching on my little gnats and fruit flies in the nursing area. Even a full on house fly. Poor thing wiggled for a day. My son loves and is very curious about plants and these are great for teaching. Super much better than the ones in the stores.
I received these flytraps very quickly and in excellent condition and they are doing well. There are multiple plants in each pot. I very highly recommend ordering from Sarracenia Northwest!
