'Venus Fly Trap'

Dionaea muscipula

Whilst this carnivorous insect eater is native to an only a small area of wetlands in North and South Carolina, it is instantly recognisable the world over and has been widely cultivated to be grown as a houseplant across the globe.

If you're considering adding one of these to your collection - to take out those pesky fungus gnats harassing your houseplants - make sure you have access to rainwater or distilled water; nothing makes a fly trap more grumpy than tap water!!


9cm pot

Why Hutch selects me

Whilst these little guys are more demanding than your run of the mill houseplant, the level of interaction and reward that they provide makes all the work worthwhile!

How to look after me

Watering: Regularly - do not let these little fly catchers dry out; approximately 2-3 times a week; mist regularly - rainwater or distilled water is key

Light: Bright / some sun

Why I'm unique

We work hard to provide a clear photograph and description of your chosen plant. However, all plants are unique and, whilst the pot size remains the same, there is always variation in size and shape from one plant to the next.
