Description

This Plant is a named cultivar “Dantate” is available and has been grown from a flower stem cutting last year, here in my Greenhouse in the UK.

As previously stated the plant will be sent  and should be planted on arrival in a good quality potting media either long fibre sphagnum moss or a mix of pure peat moss, & perlite. On no account should it be planted in any of the commercial potting mixes available as these may contain additional nutrients which are not suitable for Carnivorous plants.

Do not use any fertiliser on your Dionaea muscipula as they will catch there own food, flies etc.

I would strongly recommend you repot annually and remember they need a winter dormancy period to survive, other information is available in my growing guides on this site.

These plants require full exposure to sunlight for the best growth, colour & general health of the plant and if grown indoors then a south facing window in full sun is ideal.

It is advisable to only use rainwater/RO water. Keep your plants standing in a small amount of water during the growing season.
