Dionaea m. 'Wacky Traps' has been likened to Bart Simpsons hair and we think that's pretty fitting! It's unusually shaped traps have a ragged edge and the interior of the traps blush orangey red. Be sure to apply MaxSea fertilizer once per month as this is a flytrap that cannot keep prey in the traps due to the mutated cilia.
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.
THESE PLANTS ARE BARE-ROOTED. You will need to pot them up in a mix of peat and perlite when you receive them.
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.
