Dionaea muscipula, aka Venus Flytrap, is a carnivorous plant famous for its unusual habit of catching and digesting insects and other small animals. Touch a trigger hair twice, or two hairs in quick succession, and an electric charge will close the trap, the interlocking teeth forming a cage. Digestive enzymes will then digest the plant.

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.

As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.

Pro tips

Their main diet is flies (or other small insects) but the trick is that the prey must be alive when caught. Dead flies won't work in Venus flytrap feeding; the insect must move around inside the trap to trigger it to close and digest it. It also needs to be small enough that the trap can close tightly around it to keep out bacteria.
Like many other plants, Venus flytraps need a period of winter dormancy when they appear to be dead (the leaves may die back). Keep it somewhere warm and bright, and don't let the soil dry out completely. Using rainwater or distilled water would also be ideal.

Care Guide

How to take care of Venus Flytrap

They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, although early morning or late evening sun is fine. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is best and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.

They will thrive in bright light, but also can tolerate medium light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. They can be placed anywhere between the middle of the room and the window. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

They like the soil to stay consistently moist, but not soaking wet. Give them water whenever just the surface of the soil is starting to get dry. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

They like a high humidity environment, give them a mist daily or as often as possible. Alternatively, you can put them around a humidifier. Although they won't die if they don't receive enough humidity, their leaves may have some dry, crunchy, or yellow edges.

You can feel comfortable having this plant around your home in the potential case where your pet feels like nibbling on it. However, we typically recommend keeping your pets from eating any of your houseplants.

Origin: Southeastern United States

Southeastern United States

Introducing the Venus Flytrap, a fascinating and carnivorous plant that teaches us the importance of adaptation and the power of resourcefulness.

The Venus Flytrap, or Dionaea muscipula, is native to the subtropical wetlands of the United States. This remarkable plant is known for its unique ability to capture and digest insects, using its modified leaves that act as a cunning trap. The Venus Flytrap's ingenious hunting mechanism serves as a testament to the power of adaptation and the value of resourcefulness in a constantly changing world.

To help your Venus Flytrap thrive, provide it with medium to bright, indirect light and keep it in a consistently moist environment. This captivating plant demonstrates how adapting to specific conditions can lead to innovative solutions and a better understanding of our surroundings.

When it comes to watering, Venus Flytraps require distilled water or rainwater, as tap water can be harmful due to its mineral content. This need for pure water serves as a reminder of the importance of being mindful of the resources we consume and the impact they have on our well-being.

As your Venus Flytrap grows, you may occasionally need to feed it insects, such as flies or small spiders. This carnivorous nature is a powerful reminder of the incredible diversity of life and the myriad ways organisms can adapt to thrive in their environments.

Welcome the Venus Flytrap into your home, and let it inspire you with its symbolism of adaptation, resourcefulness, and the power of innovation. It's not just a plant; it's a remarkable example of the resilience and creativity of life, reminding us that, like the Venus Flytrap, we too can adapt and grow, no matter the challenges we face.
