Product Description

You will receive a live healthy adult sized Venus Flytrap Plant. It comes with a 3 inch net pot, just like the one in the picture, moss appropriate for carnivorous plant soil loosely packed, and a full page detailed caresheet, written by an experienced Venus Flytrap grower specifically designed for beginners, explaining how to take care of Venus Flytraps. All you will need is a bowl or saucer to hold the Venus Flytrap's pot that it comes with and a little bit of water, a gallon or so of reverse osmosis or distilled water, and a sunny window or a place in the yard to put your Venus Flytrap's pot in. Humidity domes and year round warm weather are not necessary. Don't be fooled by other offers for Venus Flytraps that have them arrive in or with terrariums or humidity domes. These type of plants have strong light requirements and it is a myth that they need high humidity. The truth is that Venus Flytrap setups with terrariums or humidity domes almost always cause these types of plants to eventually die. They need to be grown in open air with containers that allow air to get into their soil and there should be little to block or diffuse their lighting. Venus Flytraps take about 2-3 years from seed to reach a decent size. A kit with Venus Flytrap seeds is not going to quickly turn into a Venus Flytrap about the size of the one offered in this listing. A beginner new to Venus Flytraps should be aware that if Venus Flytrap seeds are bought, even with a kit, that it will take at least 2 1/2 to 3 years, assuming it is grown correctly, to reach the size of the Venus Flytraps offered in this listing.

I was a little hesitant buying a live plant online, but after receiving the plant, my fears were calmed. Not only did it arrive ALIVE, but there were detailed instructions on how to care for the plant. If that was not enough, the seller emailed me that very night asking if everything arrived alright and did I have any questions. Search no further, you have found what you are looking for through this seller!

The Venus Fly Trap came in perfectly healthy with multiple traps. I had it in a sunny window and at times put it outside when it was a warm day since it was only early April...eventually after the weather was warm enought I was able to keep it outside. Finally the plant was growing many new traps and before you know it there was too many to count! Every day at least 1 or 2 traps would catch a bug! Very satisfied from the seller and now I have 7 more plants that I have been taking care of and another 1 coming in today!

The Venus fly trap arrived quickly (the plant was shipped immediately and arrived 2 days later) and was alive and a beautiful green. It was a little smaller than other fly traps I have bought before, but seeing as it's still technically winter I shouldn't expect a large one and it will no doubt get bigger. As a bonus, my order came with two separate fly traps, the main large one, and a small one that had snuck in by being so close to the big one. Setting it up in the pot was quick and easy and the care instructions that came with it were clear and detailed. I received a quick and clear response from the seller when I contacted him with a question and he made sure you were satisfied with your order. It was almost as if you had walked into a physical store and bought the plant your self from him. Would highly recommend this seller.

This level of customer service is hard to find. Joel was Incredibly helpful and very quick to respond to all my questions. I received happy, healthy plants in just a few days. All my future orders will defiantly be placed with Joels Carnivorous Plants and I highly recommend them.

The plant came fairly healthy, and was relatively easy to plant. It is pretty cool. I suggest leaving it outside, that's the easiest way for it to feed and get the sun it needs. It will also catch bugs on it's own this way. I smile a little (okay...a lot) every time I come home from work to find another trap closed with a couple of tiny legs sticking out. You might want to feed it one bug when you first get it, just to get your plant off to a good start. If you do this, try very hard to feed it a LIVE insect. You can give it a dead bug and trigger a few hairs to make it close, but this can cause a problem. Giving it an already dead bug seems like it should be okay, but might cause the trap to re-open after a few hours, because the trap doesn't know it caught a live bug if nothing struggles after the initial detection.

And this sort of brings me to my next point, and the reason this isn't a five-star review: you need to do your own research on fly trap care. DO NOT depend solely on the instructions that come with the plant. They aren't a bad start, but they do give some questionable advice, such as the woefully inadequate potting recommendations. A quick visit to one of the many websites dedicated to carnivorous plants will point you in the right direction.

Overall a good product that is a lot of fun with the right care and knowledge.

I was hesitant to buy a plant online and worried the plant wouldn't make it to my house alive. The plant arrived in my mailbox three days later after I ordered it and when I opened the box I was happy to see that it arrived green and healthy looking. I was expecting to have only one trap but I was supper excited that there are six in fact. I have four big ones and two small ones. The directions are simple and clear. The hardest part was trying to get water that was distilled or just reverse osmosis without added stuff to it. I did eventually find just distilled water at our local Walmart. I will buy more plants from this seller in the future.

Quite a large VFT. Very happy with this order. The plant was shipped perfectly. Joel's is the best on Amazon. I have ordered from a couple other places before I found this seller and none were even close to Joel in quality. Very quick customer service responses and Jimmy John's like delivery time. No need to look elsewhere you will be more than satisfied with anything you order from this seller
