The Dente fly trap has unique saw-like or tooth-like edges on the trap margins. It has hinged leaves with three or four sensitive hairs in the center of each lobe. When an insect touches the hairs, the hinge mechanism is triggered, and the leaves close rapidly to trap the insect.

  • Light: Full to part sun
  • Soil: Grows well in peat, peat/perlite, or sphagnum moss (Try ours here.) Place a tray of water underneath to keep the plant wet.
  • Zones: 6-10

GOOD TO KNOW

Damaged leaves? Venus fly traps are perennials that form bulbs. Sometimes in shipping, a leaf or two will die back. Leaves turn black when they die back, but the bulb is still healthy.

Plant size. Our plants ship in 3-inch-deep pots when they are 3-6 inches tall so they can grow to maturity under your green thumb.
