This famous, carnivorous plant is a fascinating addition to your houseplant family as well as a fun gift for friends and family! Watch in awe as your Venus Fly Trap springs into action, luring and trapping pesky bugs.
It will mostly catch its's own food but you can feed it one small insect a week if you like, and try to alternate which traps you’re feeding. Although tempting don't poke their leaves, they need all their energy for catching insects.
In the colder months, your Venus Fly Trap shifts into a winter dormancy period. It will stop growing and most of the leaves turn black and die. But do not be alarmed! This dormancy period is absolutely necessary and leaves will reappear come Spring.

We won a Silver Gilt medal for our debut exhibit at this years' Chelsea Flower Show's Houseplant Studios.
