Octopus Plant 30/cs

Call for Price

Our Retail-Ready Venus Flytrap case ships with 30 mature plants, 2 years old, individually packaged in clear terrarium sleeves.



Each case contains 30 Octopus Plants (Drosera capensis) grown in 3″ pots with protective packaging.

Octopus Plants have tentacles, just like the animal in the oceans.  When an insect lands on the leaf, a drop of glue at the tip of each tentacle mires the insect, trapping it. Adjacent tentacles join in the action, and fold over the prey. For some meals, the entire leaf will curl around the insect as well.  Leaves release enzymes which digest the meal quickly, sometimes as fast as 24 hours.

This retail pack is ready to place on a sales counter the moment it arrives.

Clear plastic terrarium sleeves protect the plants from curious fingers, as well as protect the plants against dry air.  Plants usually last at least a week without needing water at the point of sale. If they do need water, the entire plastic sleeve is water proof and can be set in a tray of water.

Most Drosera come from temperate climates and go dormant in the winter season. The Octopus Plant comes from South Africa, and will grow all year long.

A common name for Drosera species is “Sundew,” from the way the sunlight reflects off the droplets of glue on leaf surfaces.

These cases can be shipped FedEx.
