The Venus Flytrap – Dionaea muscipula – is very variable but generally has green traps with red inside the trap from a slight blush to a deep red. Traps are produced during the growing season with taller more upright traps growing in the summer. Trap size does vary from 1-4 cm.

The captivating Venus Flytrap is a marvel of nature that adds a touch of intrigue to any plant collection. This extraordinary carnivorous plant is not your typical flora—it’s a botanical predator that lures and captures its prey with mesmerizing traps.

Imagine owning a piece of the wild right in your own home. The Venus Flytrap’s distinctive appearance, with its toothed, jaw-like leaves, is a conversation starter. Its vibrant green color and intricate traps make it a unique and fascinating addition to your indoor garden.

Care for this carnivorous companion is surprisingly simple. Place it in a sunny spot, and watch as it thrives on a diet of insects. Dionaea muscipula is a self-sufficient wonder, showcasing nature’s ingenuity in a compact package. No green thumb required—just rainwater, sun and a sense of wonder and appreciation for the extraordinary.

The Venus Flytrap is not just a plant; it’s a living spectacle that will capture your imagination and keep you entranced by the wonders of the botanical kingdom. Welcome the wild into your home and let the Venus Flytrap be the star of your botanical collection.

    Absolutely class 10/10 would buy again apart from the fact it swallowed the wedding ring when it bit off my wife’s finger

    Quick delivery! I ordered on Sunday and it arrived by Wednesday. It was packed really well and came with a free huge fly. I’ve named my plant Audrey 2, seeing as my obsession started with the movie namesake. I want more already!

    I have bought 6 venus fly traps so far from Little Shop Of Horrors all of my plants arrived healthy ,well packed and fast delivery ☺️ they are thriving. I ordered one from another online store and it was in such bad condition I will only use this company in future. They also are happy to give you advice on your plants the lady I spoke to was very helpful. Would recommend 100%.

    Ordered late Friday night, arrived in perfect condition on Tuesday morning. Plant came in its own well watered little greenhouse, with well established traps and lots of new ones coming up. Really happy with this purchase and will definitely be back for more.

    I ordered x2 of these plants and both arrived in excellent condition with vibrant, healthy and good sized traps. They are well potted and none of the traps had been triggered during delivery, not that it would be an issue if they had. I have since ordered another 3 plants from here, all VFT but different varieties and look forward to their arrival. Would highly recommend.

    My B52s arrived today. Packed really well no damage at all to them. Bigger than I expected. They have quite big traps and lots of baby ones coming up. Really excited having them. Think im addicted, I will be buying more for myself and friends. Cannot wait to see it catch a fly. Would add photos but do not know how.

    We wanted a Venus Fly trap for our son, but have struggled to find one. Having looked online, there were cheap options but as I was concerned at the potential quality I avoided these. I then found the website for little shop of horrors. Being in Devon, and having read the ‘about us’ and reviews I ordered the standard VFT and gone large SW variety. The plants came very quickly – ordered Saturday, arrived Tuesday. The packaging was excellent, with the plants being perfect when I took them out. There are plenty of heads on both plants, and look very healthy.

    I am so glad I paid a couple of pounds extra to have plants and customer service of real quality. I hope my son has Great
    pleasure in looking after his ‘prehistoric’ plants.
