Venus Flytrap 'Wacky Traps' is exactly that: wacky! At first glance, they are similar in appearance to the common flytrap; but when you look closer, you can see how misshapen the traps are. They literally look like something ate away at and deformed the traps! Not a good bug-catcher, but quite the conversation piece to the flytrap lover. Please note that not every single trap of this cultivar, and especially traps on younger plants, shows the characteristic 'wacky' trap. In our opinion, the coolness factor of the traps that DO show this trait certainly makes up for it! All our plants are shipped potted to reduce stress, not bareroot as you find with many other suppliers. All you do is water and enjoy.
