The 'Dentate' cultivar
Dionaea muscipula 'Akai Ryu', Japanese for 'Red Dragon'

Venus flytraps are by far the most commonly recognized and cultivated carnivorous plant. They are sold as houseplants and are often found at florists, hardware stores and supermarkets. During the past ten years or so large quantities of cultivars (cultivated varieties) have come into the market through tissue culture of selected genetic mutations. It is through tissue culture that great quantities of plants are raised for commercial markets.
