FT001 Venus Fly Trap MEDIUM Dionaea muscipula
Venus Fly Trap | Dionaea Muscipula | Carnivorous Plants
The most popular of all carnivorous plants with its jaw like traps waiting to spring shut on any unsuspecting small insect. The venus flytrap really catches the imagination of children and adults alike! And is one of the most unusual plants in the world. Only water with rainwater and keep the plants in a cool position during the Winter months.
Always remove the flowers in the spring as these can weaken the plant.
These plants are mature and sent out ready potted in 9cm pots and come with a growing guide.
Flytraps do well on a sunny windowsill or frost-free greenhouse. Stand the plant in a large saucer of rainwater from March to Sept always watering from the saucer, pinch out any flower buds before they form as these can weaken the plants. Never make the traps shut artificially or force feed the plants, they can be fed the odd live fly every now and again if you wish. During the Winter months the plants will go into dormancy, if growing indoors move the plants to a much cooler position at this time, keep the compost just damp rather than wet and remove any dead foliage. Plants can be re-potted in our com 1 Feb-March time when they will come back into full growth. Remember these plants lose most of their foliage over winter.

Product exceeded expectations
I have just started a bog garden. Ordered a venus fly trap from Hampshire Carnivorous Plants with lots of other varieties. I'm very impressed with the quality of what I received. Many thanks.

This is my first Venus fly trap and I'm so happy
The plant was packaged very well and arrived in a happy condition and soil was still very much moist.
I've currently placed it in my south facing window sill temporarily until I purchase a grow light to help to give extra support.
I've never owned a carnivorous plant before and was really happy to find a information sheet on giving proper care.
I'm extremely happy and will definitely be buying more fly traps in future
Thank you Hampshire for an extremely happy plant, I'm one happy customer

My fly trap arrived very quickly and in good condition. The plant was well packaged for protection. I was kept up to date with the dispatch and delivery details.
If I need any more plants I will definitely order from HCP again.
