Venus Flytrap - Akai ryu

Rolf Wienbarg
First attempt at time growing carnivorous plants.

Very happy with my purchase. Delivery was quick, the plant arrived healthy and pages of useful planting and care instructions were provided with the purchase. Colin was patient & helpful answering my questions which I could
have found had I read the all the provided info first. Considering creating a terrarium. First want to learn how to keep this one alive. Couldnt find a plastic pot smaller than 6”.
