If you are looking to purchase venus flytrap seeds then you are in luck as they are now listed as part of the standard range at the 'Seeds of Eaden' seed shop.

Despite their exotic nature Venus flytraps are relatively easy to grow. All you need to do is mimic their natural habitat. Native to subtropical wetlands on the East Coast of the United States Venus flytraps grow in a nutrient poor, acidic soil, so to start with you will need ericaceous seed compost.

Fill 4 inch pots with the ericaceous compost and gently water in until the compost is sodden. Allow the excess water to drain away then sow the Venus flytrap seeds so that they are resting on the surface of the compost. Venus fly trap seeds require the presence of light to help initiate germination to do not cover the seeds with compost although a thin layer of vermiculite will help to prevent the seeds from being disturbed when watered while allowing light to reach the seed.

Seal the pots inside a polythene bag or cover with glass and place in a warm bright position but one that does not receive direct sunlight as this can cause the compost to dry out.

If you have a heated propagator, maintain an optimum temperature of between 25-27 degrees Celsius.

Maintain conditions of high humidity using a handheld plant mister.

You can expect germination to occur anytime from 20-40. Once the seedlings emerge the high levels of humidity and be dropped back a little.

Once the first 3-4 true leaves have developed the seedlings can be carefully pricked out and potted on into individual pots. Until the first traps open give a very weak solution of liquid fertiliser once a month. Never over fertilise as this can easily kill the the sensitive roots.
