The most famous of all the carnivorous plants, the Venus Flytrap (Dionaea muscipula) is fascinating to watch and easy to grow. Insects are attracted by nectar inside the trap, dangerously close to trigger hairs, which when touched twice cause the trap to close. Traps will often grow large enough to catch bluebottles and even wasps in the summer, but they are not fussy - spiders, slugs and daddy long legs are regular victims.
There is only one species but they come in many different colours, shapes and sizes. Over the years we have increased the range of our Venus Flytraps including some bred and named by ourselves ('Spider', 'South West Giant').
All our Venus Flytraps are sent as plants in their pots and come with full instructions. They require a sunny position. For more information and full care instructions click here
