About Venus Flytrap Seeds

Dionaea muscipula

Seed Type Open Pollinated Seed
Plant Type Carnivorous, Rosette

Filled with childhood wonder and awe, Venus Flytrap is among one of the most intriguing plants you can grow. An American native from the Carolinas, flytraps evolved in environments with extremely low soil nutrient levels. As a result, these resilient plants have developed the capacity to absorb nutrients from trapped and digested insect prey. We all remember the first time we witnessed this ingenuity with absolute wonder! Bring back fun and whimsy to your life and garden by growing this carnivorous plant.
