Dionaea m. ‘Schuppenstiel’ means "scary stalk" in German and it is named for the ridging all along the petioles of the trap. “Schuppenstiel Destruction” is a variation of this remarkable mutation with more twisted and mutated traps!
Please note that these plants often don’t fully express their trademark ridging until later in spring/summer.
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.
