The infamous Venus Fly Trap, Dionaea muscipula,  is an Insect-resistant succulent that grows in humid/swamp-like conditions and blooms well in well-lit areas without direct sunlight. It eats flies, crickets, spiders, and other insects, either alive or dead, by luring the bugs into its open jaws and then snapping shut. The bug is trapped and the plant digests the insect. While native to the subtropical wetlands of the Carolinas, this extremely specialized variety is grown from tissue culture rather than taken from the wild. Best to grow in warm areas outside where insects abound, and then when cooler weather arrives, bring it inside. Growing instructions are included. Just add distilled water or grow above a water tray, no need to repot or fertilize. It likes very humid & swamp-like conditions, such as an open-top terrarium or paludarium tank!

  • No need to replant as the plant grows very slowly & will survive for years in its 3 in. pot
  • Grow in bright light but keep out of direct sunlight
  • Grown in sphagnum moss & growing media should never dry out completely, ideally should be just moist, not soggy nor waterlogged
  • Plants are sensitive to chemicals, so be sure to water them only with distilled water or rainwater. City tap water can be used if the water is allowed to sit out in an open container for a few days before using it.
  • Never feed raw meat, only live or freshly killed insects.
