Info

Insects are attracted to the reddish interior lobes of the fly traps, causing the traps to close and capture the insect. Likes sun and always moist, growing to approx 1-2" tall with a minimum temp of 35 degrees in winter and should be kept above 60 degrees during summer. Do not fertilize. A neat and fun plant to grow.

Info

Witness the revenge of the plant kingdom. We all know that bugs eat plants but it seems almost a violation of natural order for a plant to eat bugs. The reddish interior of the lobes serves as the main attraction to the insects which the plant devours. No insects around the house? See what happens when you touch the inner lobe with a pencil point. For successful culture, keep in a saucer with water at all times and in a bright location.

Info

The classic Carnivore. Lures insects in, "teeth" prevent them from escaping, and then when they hit the trigger, the plant closes and absorbs them. Allow to slightly dry between waterings. No fertilizer. Winter hardy. Can also be grown indoors.
