    Dionaea Muscipula, commonly known as a Venus Flytrap is a natural fungus gnat killer! The plant comes with beautiful illustrated care instructions which will help you to keep the plant happy and thriving. All our carnivorous plants come with beautifully illustrated care instructions by our local, Scottish artist!

    If you have an issue with this pest this plant is for you. Probably the most favourite of all carnivorous plants, this one is unmistakable. The opened jaw-like leaves of this plant display bright colours enticing insects closer, as they brush the tiny trigger hairs on the surface of the leaf the jaws snap shut trapping their prey inside. A truly mesmerising plant to watch grow and mature and definitely worth keeping around in the summer to deter insects and other pests. Perfect, natural alternative to yellow sticky traps for flies including fungus gnats!

    Please be aware that Venus flytrap goes into dormancy during the winter. Younger plants may be fine without dormancy for a year or two but older need this to gather energy and be able to survive. It is a natural state when plants save energy during the winter. Symptoms are leaves turning brown and dying and there is no new growth. Some of our plants may go into dormancy triggered by the travel stress not long after you receive them. Unfortunately is a natural part of plant life and we can not skip it. If your plant shows symptoms of dormancy, decrease watering, and move the plant in a colder and darker spot for a few weeks. To wake up plants from the dormancy move into warm and sunny locations and make sure the soil will stay moist all the time.

    The plant will be selected randomly. Pictures represent our current stock.
