A great gift for any occasion, this Grow Your Own Venus Fly Trap Plant Kit is the perfect present for any intriged mind.
The Venus Fly Trap, Dionaea Muscipula, is a carnivorous plant native to the swamplands of North and South Carolina.
The venus fly trap preys on insects with its uniquely shaped leaves.
The leaf has two primary regions: a broad flat typical leaf-like region called the leaf-base that is capable of carrying out photosynthesis and grows out of the ground, and the trapping mechanism, called the leaf-blade or lamina, at the end of the leaf that is composed of two lobes with hinged together by a midrib.
Each trap has "trigger" hairs on each lobe with three trigger hairs on each lobe being normal.
The edge of the trap is lined with teeth or that lace together when the trap shuts.
Our seeds have a shelf life of 12-18 months.
Inside the Grow Your Own Venus Fly Trap Plant Kit is three terracotta coloured small plant pots (one 9cm tall, two 6cm tall), one saucer (9cm in diameter), one professional grow pellet and your red vine seeds.
An instruction sheet is also included on how to grow and take care of your new arrival.
