Dionaea m. 'Carboni Ardenti' is a fantastic and much sought after new flytrap cultivar from Diflora. Each trap is an explosion of color; the exterior a bright cherry red, with a lemon yellow interior, dotted with red trigger hairs! The traps are lined with an unusual number of trigger hairs and the cilia are jagged and uneven. The name means “burning coals” and each trap looks like a red hot coal, waiting to catch fire! A rare new cultivar that is a must-have for the flytrap collector!
PLEASE NOTE ALL VENUS FLYTRAPS ARE DORMANT IN WINTER AND ARE VERY SMALL WHEN SHIPPED OCTOBER - FEBRUARY. They will grow vigorously as photoperiods lengthen.
Sun: Full sun outdoors
Water: Always sitting in at least two inches of distilled or purified water
Temperature: 20 degrees - 80 degrees, can even take temperatures from freezing to 100 degrees but only for short periods
Dormancy: All Venus flytraps require a winter dormancy starting in October and ending in February. Many of the traps will turn black and die back during this time. Leave them outdoors in full sun, sitting in distilled water during this period. If you live in an area that snows; over winter them indoors on a sunny windowsill in an unheated room or garage. Still sitting in full sun and distilled water.
