Dionaea muscipula var. Dentate
Unique biology of a Dentate Venus flytrap
Varieties of Dentate Venus Flytraps
Dionaea muscipula ‘Jaws’ is a monster dentate Venus flytrap form with large traps that like to hug the ground, particularly later in the season. Trap interiors are deep red and the color wraps around to the exterior surfaces of the teeth.
Traps on Dente flytraps have deep red interiors, medium-sized traps, and shorter, upright petioles.
The Red Piranha flytrap is a hybrid clone of ‘Red Dragon’ x ‘Dente’. The entire plant is deep red, and teeth are short and jagged.
The Sawtooth flytrap has particularly stumpy teeth that can be irregular and extra jagged.
