The Venus Flytrap: The Official State Symbol of North Carolina

There are state birds, bugs, fish, flowers, and dogs—but did you know North Carolina has a state carnivorous plant? The Venus Flytrap is exceptional enough to deserve its own state symbol designation, and due to their rarity, it’s a felony to poach them. More than half of the carnivorous plant species in the United States are native to North Carolina, including pitcher plants, flytraps and sundews.

This is a short note to let you know the plants arrived fine (on schedule) and look great! Thank you, especially that each had a double crown (B52 has some more smaller ones too). It seemed like a lot of moss, but I wet it all figuring you knew your material better, and happy I did, for the extra pots.

I placed my order at noon, and by 6pm the same day it was processed and in the hands of USPS! The plant was well packaged and arrived in pretty good shape. The instructions that came with it were very clear and helpful! It has been about a week since I received my venus flytrap and it seems to be doing well so far. When it arrived it had 7 traps, 5 that were closed and 2 open. Since then 2 of the closed traps have reopened and 1 of them has started turning black. My only disappointment is with the number of traps. The pictures on the product page show plants with twice as many or more fully developed traps then the one I received had. I am not sure if what I received is what you typically get for an "adult" plant, but the product pictures indicated it would have had more traps.

I have purchased MULTIPLE. venus fly traps, different types, all of which have been gorgeous specimens. They arrive promptly, in very good condition, the prices are excellent, and the shipping is FREE (a huge bonus). Joel provides detailed instructions on planting, feeding, and caring for these beauties. Also, he has excellent videos, covering all aspects of fly trap management. I am totally pleased with Joel's and highly recommend them without reservation. If you want venus fly traps, you have found the right source.🤗🙌

Thanks again. Thank you. I now realize that accidental direct sun exposure damaged the first Nepenthes. I'll definitely be buying more from you in the future and recommending you to friends.

Hi, I potted the sundews I bought in sphagnum moss I previously bought from you.  I recently noticed grass-like growths sprouting. They don't look like they are sundews.  Maybe something hitch-hiked along with the sundews. Attached are pictures. Any thoughts on what's growing Reed From Customer Service: It's just grass.

Good evening!



My plants arrived yesterday and I went and bought distilled water today! (With nothing added)



I’m just wanting to know if I did this right. These guys didn’t have much, if any, roots. When I took them out of the paper towel they kind of fell apart in my hand. (I only ordered one of these) So after I moistened the medium, I just set them in there and pushed it down a little bit. Will this be ok?



Thanks for your time!



From Staff: Your setup is perfect. Just place your plants in sunlight and wait for them to triple in size in the coming months!

I just received my B52 Fly Trap. I followed instructions to plant it. I have taken some photos to show it. Is this normal for for plant to droop? Also, is this the correct water level? Please see attached photos. You have the best quality and service I have seen. Joel answered all of my questions/concerns in a very timely fashion. I ordered the B52 but was sent a different variety by mistake. Joel quickly remedied the situation by sending me the B52 without me having to return the other variety. Joel is very knowledgeable and attentive. Look no further. This is the place to buy your plants. Thank you Joe P From Staff: The droop is normal, as the plant has spent a few days in transit and has freshly emerged from dormancy. It will grow robustly in the coming weeks as we enter spring. You'll want to reduce your water level to about half of what you have the plant in now.

Why Purchase From VenusFlytrap.com?






We’ve been in business selling Venus flytraps full time since 2009.

When you make a purchase from our website, you are supporting an American family-owned local business. Our plants put food on our table and make our livelihoods possible. God bless America and long live the USA.







We only sell tissue-cultured, propagated, and seed-grown plants.

We never have and never will possess any wild-harvested plants in our facility. Part of what makes this hobby exciting for us is knowing we are doing our part to preserve nature through educating customers and providing them with genetically superior plants that have withstood the tests of time and demand.







We offer the most generously-sized carnivorous plants on the market.

The top photo shows a Venus flytrap we recently shipped to one of our customers. The bottom photo was emailed to us from a customer showing a competitor’s flytrap they bought and received. Both plants were labeled “large” on the respective websites they were purchased from. The photos speak for themselves.

You can rest assured that when you receive a “large” plant from us, it will indeed a large (if not larger) plant. We walk the extra mile to ship customers the largest plants available in the market. In fact, one of our “large” plants would likely be classified as a “monster” or “mother plant” on a competitor’s website for triple or quadruple the price if they listed the identical plant.







Free shipping!

Believe it or not, each of our carnivorous plants comes with free standard shipping, which typically takes between 2-6 days upon purchase. Due to the sheer volume of plants we ship, we have negotiated shipping rate savings, which we pass onto our customers. Expedited and overnight options exist for additional cost.







We breed some of the rarest and most desirable cultivars.

We offer rare cultivars of certain plants that are highly sought after by collectors. For example, we are fully stocked with the King of all Venus flytraps: the famous B52. We also have Dente, King Henry, and Akai Ryu (Red Dragon) varieties in stock at all times.







Our carnivorous plant prices are the lowest on the market.

We offer the lowest carnivorous plant prices on the market. We can afford to do this due to the sheer volume of plants we sell. We sold over 2MM individual plants in 2020 alone. Since we breed and propagate all of our own plants, we pass the savings along to our customers.







We only sell stable, healthy, and hardened plants.

One of the biggest problems in the carnivorous plant industry today is that many specimens are grown and sold in conditions that are very gentle. Unfortunately, many customers do not have the ability to match these gentle conditions that many of the plants they purchase have been grown in their entire lives. As a result, many hobbyists purchase carnivorous plants that needlessly die–not because carnivorous plants are difficult to keep alive and grow, but because the plants being purchased have not been hardened. Our hope is that our state of the art nursery will create a revolution in the carnivorous plant industry in the USA– permanently changing this so that carnivorous plants, not just ones sold by us, but by other plant vendors as well, will be sold in more hardened conditions so that more collectors may enjoy this hobby without as many setbacks.







Our plant inventory is consistent and well-stocked.

We estimate the carnivorous plant hobby is rapidly growing at 15% per year. We are the largest carnivorous plant sellers in the world by volume. In our state of the art facility, we strive to maintain consistent and stable year round inventory to quench our customers’ insatiable demand for plants. Each plant you see on our website is available for sale.







Our return policy protects customers.

Each order submitted through our website is backed up by our competitive and robust return policy. In the extremely rare event something happens to your shipment as a result of USPS or FedEx screwing up, we will immediately replace your entire shipment without any cost to you.


Why is the Venus Flytrap a Very Special Plant?

Venus flytraps (Dionaea muscipula) are carnivorous plants that are native to the wetlands of North and South Carolina in the United States. These plants are known for their unique ability to capture and digest insects and other small prey.

Venus flytraps have a distinctive appearance with flat, green leaves that have sharp teeth-like structures along the edges. When an insect or other small animal lands on the leaf and triggers the tiny hairs on its surface, the trap snaps shut in less than a second, trapping the prey inside.

Once the prey is trapped, the Venus flytrap secretes digestive enzymes that break down the soft tissues of the insect or other small animal, providing the plant with the nutrients it needs to survive. After the digestion process is complete, the trap reopens, ready to capture its next meal.

Venus flytraps require specific growing conditions, including bright light, high humidity, and soil that is low in nutrients. They are often grown as houseplants, but they can also be found in the wild in their native habitat.

Although Venus flytraps are fascinating plants, they are also sensitive and require special care. They should not be fed meat or other animal products, and their traps should be allowed to close naturally without being triggered by human touch. Additionally, Venus flytraps may go dormant during the winter months and require a period of cool, dry conditions to survive.

You can learn about all of this and much more right here on our website!
