FAQs about Products

Our carnivorous plants are potted in a variety of potsizes divided in: standard, medium and large.

Venus Flytrap potsizes:

  • Standard 8,5 cm.
  • Large 11 cm.

Sarracenia potsizes:

  • Standard 9 cm.
  • Medium 11 cm.
  • Large 13 cm.

The traps of Venus Flytraps will become black after catching a certain amount of insects and as soon as temperature is dropping and days become shorter, they will die back and go dormant. Click here for more information about overwintering Venus Flytraps.

Pitchers of Sarracenias will become brown as soon as temperature is dropping and  when the days become shorter, they will die back and go dormant. Cut off the brown traps about 10 cm. above the rhizome. As soon as they are totally brown, peel them carefully from the rhizome.

Obviously Carnivorous Plants eat insects and most insects will be caught by your plant or do no harm, but still there are a few pests that can kill your plant. Click here to find more information about controlling pests and diseases.
