Dionaea muscipula - Venus Flytrap ⌀8.5cm

Pot size ⌀8.5cm


Dionaea muscipula, commonly known as the Venus flytrap, is a carnivorous plant native to the wetlands of North and South Carolina in the United States. The plant is well-known for its ability to capture and digest insects and other small prey. The Venus flytrap is unique in that it has modified leaves that form a trap, which closes quickly when triggered by the movement of an insect or other prey. The plant then secretes digestive enzymes to break down the trapped prey and absorb its nutrients. The Venus flytrap is a popular plant among hobbyists and botanists due to its fascinating and unique features.


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.
