This version is green on the outside and can get a nice red coloring on the inside. A cool little bug-eating live plant it is one of the "fastest" reacting and moving plants on earth. Similar to most plants the Venus Flytrap gathers nutrients from the air and soils, but since they adapted to a poor soil environment they gathered nutrients from trapping insects. It attracts bugs with its sugary syrup and once the trigger hairs get bent it will close on the prey and has a digestive enzyme to convert that prey into fertilizer. The Venus Flytrap belongs to the carnivorous plants native to subtropical wetlands on the East Coast USA. It loves being in a pot full of damp sphagnum moss and can handle bright to part-shade lighting. The traps range in size from 1/16 inch to an inch long or longer depending on the plant.
Black traps?! Don't worry, there are a number of reasons and it may be part of the natural cycle of a trap that has already digested plenty. If you have received yours and some of the traps have turned black you can just pick them off. So long as the plant is continuing to put out new growth to replace the old traps you can remove all the dead parts as this is part of the normal part of the plant's lifecycle. If all the traps are turning black then it can be due to poor lighting or water problems. Venus Flytraps prefer distilled or spring water, tap or bottled water that often has high levels of dissolved minerals can burn the plant's roots. Adding fertilizer to the soil will hurt the plant, they need nutrient-poor soil. Since they like high humidity, a terrarium is frequently a preferred home for them.

Love the packaging, the cute container, all the information included. I even got a little surprise gift. Second attempt for this little rascal. Not doing well even after I acclimated to our temperature. I’m sure at this point it’s something I’m doing wrong. I will definitely be ordering again from this company but I think I’m done with fly traps! 🙃🙁
nice little white planter it came in. plant looks very spy. just my 2 cents but maybe you could design a plastic hood or something that can be placed over the planter for humidity.
My plant came very nice! It is green and I’m just waiting for it to take off! Thank you!
My plant is wonderful.
