Venus Fly Trap (Dionaea) 12cm Pot

Arguably the most iconic of the insect eating plants, the jawed traps spring shut when triggered by a passing insect and begin the process of digesting the victim to release its valuable nutrients. Beautiful, fascinating and deadly! A great educational plant for kids to get involved with growing too. This Venus Fly Trap will grow happily on a windowsill or frost-free greenhouse where plants need only to be kept in a tray of rain water or distilled water 1-2cm (½in -1in). Able to cope with temperatures down to 0°C and easily overwintered in a cold greenhouse or porch, the leaves emerge each spring from an underground bulb and form a rosette of 4-7 traps. Supplied as an established plant in a 12cm pot, much bigger than plants offered for sale elsewhere, ready to give you an instant pest clearing service!
