Venus flytrap "Dutch"

A descendant to the Native North Carolina typical form, this bug grabber is not only fun but functional. What makes this Venus flytrap unique? The main difference is the smaller trap size on mature plants while the inner trap coloring is a beautiful orange and red combiantion. These plants like the great outdoors but can also be grown successfully indoors under bright artificial light. They can take temperatures as low as 20F at night and a high of 90F during the day. In locations that experience higher temps, shade will be needed to prevent leaf burn. Winter dormancy starts around October, then the leaves blacken and more ground hugging traps are produced. These plants self-feed.

The most important things to avoid:
1. Excessive heat. Keep indoor and especially domed or terrarium grown plants out of direct hot sun.

2. Low humidity. Keep well above 50%. If you live in a dry climate, you will not be able to grow these without a terrarium or humid enclosure.

3. Keeping your Venus Flytraps too wet for the amount of light it is getting. Plants that are kept too wet may rot. During the summer when kept outdoors, they can be kept very wet. Indoors they will require less water, but never let them dry out.

4. Excessive handling. As much as they may seem like pets, the more you handle them the more stressed they will be.
