Dionaea muscipula ‘B52’


The Dionaea muscipula ‘B52’ cultivar can grow enormous traps over 2 inches in length. Though ironically fitting, the flytrap didn’t receive it’s name from the large B-52 bomber, rather ‘B52’ was simply a code the original grower, Henning Von Schmeling, used to identify different specimens. D. muscipula ‘B52’ is a vigorous clone and tends to form clumps of large traps.


Size and packing method: Bare root plants are 1.5-2 inches in diameter and potted plants are 3-4 inches in diameter. Bare root plants will be carefully wrapped in a damp paper towel during shipping. Potted specimens are planted in 2 inch pots and will be packed securely to prevent dislodgement.

Growing requirements

Feeding: Feed bugs, dried bloodworms, or fish food every 2-3 weeks, in addition foliar feeding with Maxsea may be beneficial since traps do not close well
