Care Notes: Each trap only opens and closes a few times before it will die off and grow a new one.  For this reason, it is important to not “false trigger” the traps and make them shut for no reason, as it will only stress out the plant with no benefit. It is also important to never fertilize a Venus Fly Trap, as that would be fatal to the plant. Not suggested for animal terrariums. 

Shipping Notes: 

As a good practice, Josh's Frogs recommends washing all plants thoroughly removing as much soil as possible with dechlorinated water before placing them in their final home. Live plants may vary in color, size, and appearance.

The plant pictured is in a 2.5" pot.
