We are very excited about Dionaea m. 'Coquillage', which was created in France. This rare and unusual flytrap has delicate little raised bumps along the traps, and when the trap is closed it resembles a shell, which is where it gets it's name ('Coquillage' is the French word for shell). The traps are large for the size of the petioles and fan out from the base of the plant prolifically.
PLEASE NOTE VENUS FLYTRAPS GO DORMANT FROM OCTOBER-FEBRUARY during this time they appear quite small and grow few traps. They will begin to grow vigorously again in Spring.
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.
