Venus Flytrap - Akai Ryu (Red Dragon)
A spectacular cultivar.
Mature Large Healthy Plants.
This is the famous Venus Flytrap, were most people start to learn about Carnivorous Plants and Venus FlyTraps(VFT) are generally the first type of interesting plant that people start their collections with. These are healthy large sized plants.
Requires bright light to grow well.
The cultivar Akai Ryu-Red Dragon, tends to remain in its winter Dormancy period longer than some of the other types of VFT's we currently grow.
Venus Fly Traps have a winter dormancy period and growth will generally slow down or stop. During this time the plants will grow shorter leaves or disappear from the soil surface. Then resume growing when the spring weather starts.
Mature plants will start flowering in Spring. The flowering process tends to deplete/tax the plants energy somewhat, so I recommend cutting the flower stalk off as it emerges, so that the plant can concentrate on producing it's amazing traps.
