Dionaea m. 'Scarlatine' is the most exciting, new Venus flytrap cultivar that we have released in a while! The name 'Scarlatine' refers to a smallpox victim which is a morbid reference to the red spots that cover the entire plant. The edges of the traps are also lined with jagged teeth instead of the more typical eyelashes. The plant is also very vigorous and can obtain some size when properly cared for.
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.
