The Scarlet Bristle cultivar of the Venus flytrap is one of my favourites. Grown in good light, the traps develop a stunning deep red colour, with just a narrow green border along the trap edges. It also has particularly short, saw-like teeth.
This form is slightly slower growing than the typical form, and requires very good light levels. As with all flytraps, the Scarlet Bristle will go dormant between November and February and require a winter resting phase. You can learn more about Dionaea cultivation by checking out my Venus Flytrap Growing Guide.
The plants I’m selling here are healthy, established Venus flytraps, and they are sent potted in appropriate soil. See delivery information.
