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.

    Never Disappointed

    Posted by Nila Nash Jackson on August 22, 2020

    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!

    All of my plants arrived carefully packaged and in great health. The fly trap was small, as expected, and has at least doubled in size in the last 2 months.
