Venus flytrap 'Dionaea muscipula 'Arasmile''

CarniVFT201
Specifications
Dionaea muscipula 'Arasmile'
Dionaea muscipula 'Arasmile' has such a broad “smile” that it might seem to have the best of intentions. But do not be deceived. It uses its broad trap lobes to lure insects to their death. Prey is attracted by the plant’s bright red upper surfaces. When touch the tiny hairs on the upper leaf surface they trigger the trap, which snaps firmly shut.

Plant care

If 'Dionaea muscipula 'Arasmile' is placed in strong light, the intensity of its red upper leaf surfaces will deepen. It needs to be kept constantly wet with rainwater or demineralised water. The ideal growing medium will contain relatively little in the way of nutrients such as a mixture of equal parts of sphagnum and perlite or equal parts of peat, orchid bark and sphagnum.
