Venus flytrap Dionaea muscipula 'Hammerhead Shark'

CarniVFT158
Specifications
Dionaea muscipula 'Hammerhead Shark'
Dionaea muscipula 'Hammerhead Shark' has leaf traps that resemble the T shaped head of a hammerhead shark. This type of shark owes its streamlined shape to its evolution with sensors spread throughout the curiously shaped head. Dionaea muscipula 'Hammerhead Shark' has other things in common with its dangerous namesake: sharp teeth and a blood lust for unsuspecting prey.

Product info

As an exotic garden plant it will thrive near a water feature such as a pond in a wet and sunny spot.
