Venus Flytrap (Dionaea muscipula), Living

(in stock)


Dionaea muscipula. The most spectacular of the carnivorous plants. Prey is captured in a 2-sided, clamshell-shaped trap. Insects are attracted to the trap by nectar secreted from numerous glands around its edges, and possibly by its bright coloring. The trap closes rapidly when the prey stimulates small trigger hairs on each half. Glands lining the resulting pouch then secrete digestive juices which consume the insect; the trap reopens within 3 to 5 days. Flytraps are best grown in Sphagnum moss in acid-bog terraria. Not for export.
