Venus Flytrap – Dentate


This beautiful plant will arouse curiosity and a dash of colour to your garden. The triangular shaped teeth around the edges of the traps mimic shark’s teeth and it’s no wonder this cultivar is referred to as ‘Sharks Teeth’. Run your fingers over the edges of the traps and it even feels like sharks’ teeth. The long upward facing leaves with traps bristling with teeth gives the impression that your plant is always hungry for a meal.

In early spring the traps start off as yellow / green in colour and transform into various shades of red in summer. The outer edges of the traps stay green which provides a nice contrast and accentuates the outline of a mouth with teeth (see attached images). As autumn / winter progresses the traps form closer to the ground. This plant develops traps up to 2 cm in length and is a moderately fast grower. As with all Venus Flytraps it looks after itself when it comes to attracting and catching insects …especially flies!
