Average mature height: Under 6 inches

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. We ship our plants in 3-inch-deep pots when they are 2.5 to 6 inches tall so they can grow to maturity under your green thumb.
