 Dionaea muscipula
Family: Droseraceae
Venus flytrap
Small shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeKeep soil moistWhite/off-white flowersOrnamental foliageFlood tolerant

The Venus flytrap is a small herbaceous wetland plant characterized by unique hinged clamshell-like traps that spring closed to catch unwary insects. Venus flytrap grows from a fleshy white rhizome which gives rise to 4-6in rosettes of reclining leaves. Each leaf consists of a relatively broad petiole (leaf stem) and a leaf blade which is modified into the trap. The perennial Venus flytrap blooms in May and June with white, five-petaled blossoms which are held a few inches above the foliage. Caring for Venus flytrap in cultivation is not too difficult, and they require no major difference to general Carnivorous Plants care. A common Venus flytrap soil mixture is 1 part sphagnum moss peat to 1 part sand, and they can be grown on the tray system - taking care to ensure the water is suitable. Venus flytraps require at least three months of cool dormancy, and will tolerate light frosts. Venus flytraps require a substrate that is constantly moist and an atmosphere with at least 80% relative humidity. They can tolerate brief periods of flooding and drying out. During the growing season, keep the planting medium constantly moist. During the winter, keep it just barely moist. Never water with anything but rain water.

Drosera sp., Sundew

Drosera aliciae
 Drosera sp.
Family: Droseraceae
Sundew
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftSemi-shadeRegular waterOrnamental foliage

The genus Drosera has around 160 species, found, all over the world. In fact, save from the frozen Arctic and Antarctic regions, no continent is without Drosera. The common name is Sundew, which is derived from the mucilage that adorns each gland on the leaves of all plants glistening in the sunlight, reminiscent of spring sunshine on early morning dew. Although the common name seems almost delightful, this hides a morbid side to the plants, or more specifically, their prey capture method. Generally, sundews are rosette-forming plants with glands protruding from the surface of the leaf. At the end of each of these glands is a drop of sticky mucilage, and these double as both lure and snare for insect prey. Since the geographical range of these plants varies hugely, so do their cultivation requirements. As a general rule, a soil mix of 1 part sphagnum moss peat to one part sand will suit most species, and will enjoy sunny conditions using the tray method for watering.
