Dionaea muscipula - Venus Flytrap

Pot size ⌀8.5cm


The Dionaea muscipula also known as Venus flytrap owes his name and popularity to iits alien appearance. With its trap leaves, which close when an insect enters, this plant turns the tables. Instead of being eaten, this plant eats meat itself! This fascinating plant is especially popular with children. Do not panic; children do not like this plant.


Rainwater is the most natural thing the Dionaea can get, but not essential. Tap water can also be fine. Make sure the plant doesn’t dry out. Keeping a dish filled with water under the plant is the easiest way to do this.


Place in a bright position. Direct sunlight is great for this plant.

The Dionaea can be placed either indoors or outdoors. The plant can withstand mild winters with frosts of no more than 5°C.


Do not fertilize the Dionaea.
