Dionaea m. "Axel's Cup Trap" is a beautiful little botanical curiosity! It is a flytrap with a mutation that has completely fused the trap on the far end. This makes the traps cupped with bright red interiors. These flytraps are wonderful to look at, but are not very good at catching insects, so they may be slightly less vigorous than a typical flytrap. One of our nursery employees, Axel Bostrom, found this plant in a seed tray and selected it for it's fun shape.
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.
