Product info

Venus Flytraps are rosette shaped carnivorous plants, originally from North America. The rosette consists of leaf stalks with a trapping structure formed by the terminal portion of each of the plant's leaves. These leaves, resembling the claw of a bear, snap shut when touched by an insect. Dionaea muscipula 'Red dragon' lures its prey to its death by means of its deep red colour. When a trigger hair on the upper leaf surface is touched more than once in quick succession, the trap snaps shut.
