Dionaea ‘Phalanx’

July 2018

The main characteristic of Dionaea ‘Phalanx’ is the very long, all-red marginal cilia of the traps, with the amazing inner coloration being a close second. The cilia alone give a certain elegance to the plant somehow.

I bought this very healthy young specimen from a French flytrap enthusiast. It will grow alongside Dionaea ‘Dracula’ and Sarracenia leucophylla var. alba.

Planting the little Dionaea was complicated by the layer of pozzolan, but it went well.
