Where we found Dionaea muscipula “Double Trouble”?
Diflora started the in vitro-propagation of Dionaea muscipula “Double Trouble” from cuttings of floral scape of the mother plant, in this way we can ensure the 100% genetic identity of all the plants we reproduce.
How we cultivate Dionaea muscipula?
Dionaea muscipula “Double Trouble” is acclimated in a Grow Chamber with controlled temperatures and humidity. This indoor setup ensure an easy adaptation to extra-vitro condition, guaranteeing the best conditions for plants in this delicate stage.
After this first step Dionaea muscipula is bringed outside, under direct sunlight with the classic tray system as watering method and so, keeping always some amount of water in the tray. As with the most of carnivorous plant we use distilled water (produced by a reverse osmotic system) or rain water.
All available plants at Diflora’s shop are hardened for 2 months in full sunligh in greenhouse.
Dionaea muscipula “Double Trouble” is a carnivorous plant from temperate climate, it’s grown outside all year long, under direct sunlight both in winter and in summer.
The plant starts to sprout out from late march, early April and continue to grow until late October when the cold temperature become more and more strong. When fall comes Dionaea muscipula produce a rosette of smaller dimension then the previous vegetative leaves with the aim of protect itself from freeze, exposing as less surface as it can to the below zero temperatures of winter.
This resting period is called “dormancy”: the central part of the rosette stay alive while all the rest turns brown and seems to be dead. BUT IT’S NOT DEAD! It’s the normal seasonal adaptation of a Venus Fly Trap that goes in dormancy until the first warmy days of spring.
