Description
 
DORMANCY WARNING: flytraps are temperate perennials, and they require several months of winter dormancy. Plants purchased during this time may be small or appear to have no leaves at all.

Venus flytrap 'Cupped Trap' is a rare and remarkable plant. An extremely unusual mutation causes the traps of this plant to fuse at one end. This causes a distinctly cup-like appearance. When an insect comes in contact with the tiny trigger-hairs inside of the Venus flytrap 'Cupped Trap''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 'Cuppted Traps' are temperate perennials, which means they require a Winter dormancy.

This plant will be shipped bare-root with a 3" plastic pot and enough top-quality New Zealand long-fiber sphagnum moss to fill it. Planting and growing instructions will also be included.
