Venus Flytrap ‘B52’ is in a class of its own. Venus flytrap ‘B52’ grows massive, bright red traps with unusually long teeth. These Dionaea Muscipula are vigorous growers, and produce a large number of traps.  There is very high demand for these plants, so snap them up while you can! When an insect comes in contact with the tiny trigger-hairs inside of the Venus flytrap B52’s mouth, the trap will shut in a fraction of a second. The insect will then be digested by the Venus flytrap over several days. Venus flytrap ‘B52s’ are temperate perennials, which means they require a Winter dormancy. During this time, your Venus flytrap’s growth will slow or cease completely and the plant may appear to be completely dead.

Your B52 Dionaea Muscipula adult plant kit will be shipped in a generous moss plug. Included in this kit is our 3″ professional grower’s-grade porous plastic pot and enough top-quality long-fiber moss to completely fill it. Planting and detailed care instructions will also be included for a complete growing experience.

  • STRIKING PLANT DÉCOR: Showcase this stunning plant in a Venus Fly Trap pot with a carnivorous plant soil mix for an eye-catching display. Try planting your own Dionaea muscipula seeds in flytrap soil with Dionaea muscipula food to support growth.
  • LIVE CARNIVOROUS PLANTS AT YOUR DOOR: Venus Fly Trap live plants will arrive fresh and in prime condition. These exotic plants can thrive as both live indoor plants or outdoor plants.

Our USA-grown Venus Fly Trap (Dionaea Muscipula), also known atrapamoscas, is a unique and fascinating carnivorous plant. This subtropical wetland species features bright green leaves topped with hinged lobes at each end. A striking blast of red is visible on the inner surfaces of the lobes which are outlined with small bristles that interlock when trapping prey. This stunning perennial is native to the coastal plains of North and South Carolina and holds a unique ability to trap and consume small, unsuspecting bugs. Venus Fly Traps get essential nutrients through the soil and by consuming small insects such as gnats, beetles, flies, mosquitos and spiders. Each modified leaf can be expected to catch five to eight insects before it dies, at which point new traps will grow in their stead. White flowers with green veins will bloom during spring, however the flowering process for a Venus Fly Trap can exhaust and consume significant energy from the plant. For this reason, plant owners may choose to trim away the flowering stalks.

In addition to being useful, the Venus Fly Trap is also a naturally beautiful addition to any type of indoor or outdoor décor. Display them in tall pots, a plant terrarium, on a plant stand, and much more. Venus Fly Traps thrive in bright, indirect sunlight locations and should be kept in moist, acidic soil. When the soil becomes damp to the touch (never soggy or wet), that’s when you know it’s time to water. We recommend deeply watering with distilled, reverse osmosis, or rainwater only, as Venus Fly Traps prefer water that is free from chlorine, minerals, or salts. Venus flytraps are best kept in a temperature range of 70-90°F with humidity maintained at 50-80%, mist the foliage to increase humidity.

Each Venus Flytrap ships fully rooted in a 3 inch grow pot and will be approximately 3 to 4 inches tall. We take every precaution to package your plants for a successful arrival. Venus Fly Traps trees are resilient, although more fragile leaves may experience minimal damage in-transit. Every so often a package will endure some stress, causing some soil or plants to come loose. Should soil disruption occur, simply put the loose soil back in the pot, dampen it, and make a hole to place the plant in. To stabilize the plant, gently push soil around the base.

Venus Fly Trap (Dionaea muscipula), also known as atrapamoscas, is a live carnivorous plant native to the coastal plains of North and South Carolina. This fascinating perennial features an overall shade of bright green with a striking blast of red on the inner surfaces of its hinged leaves. Venus Fly Traps get essential nutrients by consuming unsuspecting small insects such as a gnat, beetle, fly, mosquito and spider. Each modified leaf on this bug killer can be expected to catch five to eight insects before it dies, at which point new traps will grow in their stead. These exciting plants make exceptional home gifts for a housewarming party and are fabulous to give as favors at a baby shower or wedding. For an eye-catching display of home decor, plant your Venus Fly Trap in a decorative planter and arrange on a plant stand or create a vibrant plant terrarium with your choice of sand, dirt, rocks, and more.

Venus Fly Trap plants are also ideal for grabbing attention when displayed on a desk in a classroom. You can even try growing your own Venus Fly Trap plant with Dionaea muscipula seeds and other types of carnivora seed. An adult Venus Fly Trap can reach a diameter of 4 to 5 inches and prefers bright, indirect sunlight. We recommend watering Venus Fly Trap once per week with distilled water or rainwater that is free from chlorine, minerals, or salts. As the plant becomes mature, the roots will become long and grow deep into the soil, best suited for planting in tall pots. White flowers with green veins will bloom during spring, however the flowering process for a Venus Fly Trap can exhaust and consume significant energy from the plant. For this reason, plant owners may choose to trim away the flowering stalks. A small amount of carnivorous plant fertilizer can be added to the maintenance process for boosted vitality.

    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 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.

    Hello, I purchased one of the 1x Large Adult Plant: Giant Venus Flytrap "B52" Dionaea Muscipula Cultivar for my grandson in Oct. of 2021. It was dormant for a time but not completely as we live in Florida. Do I need to repot this at some point? If so, would you mind telling me what type of pot and soil I should purchase? We only water with distilled water changing to fresh water once a month so we think it is doing well so far. Thank you for your time! From Staff: Yes, I would repot the plant at some point. It looks like your specimen is sprouting multiple growth points and is doing well for you!

    Thanks! They arrived today and look great. Will get distilled water in the morning and get everything set up. Thanks again! Fantastic! We've set them up and got an indoor plant light that we'll also use because we don't get a lot of sun in the house. My son is so excited to have these. Thanks for the extra! Some photos...

    My order for a B52 VFT arrived! I’m very excited! The VFT was professionally packaged with everything needed (except the water 😆 ), including instructions on planting, watering and feeding. Very easy to follow. The VFT is now in its new home, sitting on a window sill, looking healthy and happy. I’m a middle school science teacher, and if all goes well with this guy, I am going to buy more carnivorous plants for the classroom – the students think these plants are awesome!

    Awful photo, but then it’s nighttime. It’s a good size, arrived in good condition. Turned out to be two rather than one! Arrived bare root but with pot and dehydrated sphagnum and a whole bunch of very good instructions! They’re acclimating here before I put them in the bog garden.

    Beautiful plant that arrived a little more than two weeks after ordering. As previous reviews have stated, directions for potting are excellent, and the Flytrap is very well protected during shipping. Seller is very prompt with responses to questions. Plant comes with a detailed care sheet and FAQs sheet. We have this one nestled within my wife's orchid collection in a west window, so lots of sun. Very, very pleased with this order - even came with a complimentary fly (see photo)!

    I was very impressed with the quality of the fly trap when it arrived. It was very green and had many traps. The instructions were very clear on how to set it up and my son watched the easy to follow to videos online. My son found a small worm outside and the plant gobbled it right up! He fed it another worm about a week later. One of the traps has turned black, but I was expecting that since that was also in the included instructions. Customer service even followed up a few weeks after the purchase just to make sure everything was going okay. I would not buy a carnivorous plant from anyone else! Great quality plants and excellent customer service!

    I bought mine well over a year ago. They are so healthy and beautiful, it's amazing. I keep them outside for 3 seasons and bring them inside for the Winter (I'm in CT). They have become so big and vibrant and happy, I can't say enough how pleased I am with them. People really get a kick out of them. All I do is make sure they are topped off with the proper amount of water (I like to uses rain water or distilled water) and keep them where they get a good amount of sun. They catch more flies than they know what to do with. Also it's cool to see them flower and grow through the different seasonal changes. VenusFlytrap.com is awesome and very helpful. Fun stuff.
