Features

Also Known as Dionaea muscipula.
Habit A carnivorous plant with an appetite for insects. 2 leaves are hinged together to form a trap, and when the trap senses something within it, it snaps shut. The teeth on the trap interlock so the prey cannot escape.
Height The traps are quite small, and will only grow up to 5cm in height.
Colour Lime green stems and leaves. The inside of the trap is maroon red in colour.
Flowers White, star shaped flower appear on very tall stems above the plant. This is so that insects can pollinate the flowers without falling victim to the traps below.
Aspect Happy in either a full sun or part shade position, but must be kept moist.
Uses A great novelty plant as a gift or for the collector who loves unusual species. Avoid touching the traps with your hands as the oil in your skin can damage the foliage. Must be kept moist.
Product Size Pot is 70mm in diameter and 65mm in height (not including plant). Plant comes fully established in pot.
Can be shipped to Due to quarantine restrictions, this item can only be shipped to areas within Western Australia (WA).
