Dionaea muscipula ‘Alien’ is a cultivar originating from Europe. It produces long arched traps with many short teeth and trigger hairs in a tight low-growing rosette. The cultivar received its name after Ridley Scott’s movie “Alien”. Traps don’t close well on their own so supplemental foliar feeding with Maxsea may be beneficial.
Size and packing method: You will receive a young plant about 1.5 inches across with juvenile traps. Plants are shipped bare root, carefully wrapped in a damp paper towel. If selecting with soil mix, you will receive two cups of our prepackaged Carnivorous Plant Soil Mix in addition to the bare root plant. This quantity of soil is roughly enough to fill one 2.5 x 2.5 x 3.5 inch square pot.
