B52 is the famous "world's largest traps" Venus Flytrap, though it may be dethroned from this title by the newly released DC XL Venus fly trap. In addition to being big, it's also a vigorous grower and often very colorful with deep red traps.

* Required Fields



The B52 is one of the culminating achievements of a Venus Flytrap breeding program of Henning von Schmeling. Micropropagated ("tissue cultured") by David Conner for sale and more widespread distribution, it continues to generate a very strong demand for good reason. A superior Venus Flytrap. 'B52' is an officially registered Venus Flytrap cultivar.

small, cute & awsome!
it was small because it was dormant season. todays date is 12/5/2013. its mid winter so i expected it to be really small. they are so cute!!! i ordered it on saturday and now its thursday and i have it. a few of them have nice dark red light purple coloration and one of them had really long cilia. the biggest mezhured about half an inch. my b52 venus flytrap was in very good condishin. it was extremely thirsty. it drank over 4 inches of water i put in the tray. i counted 10 traps, 5 of them open and one that was open was bent and yellowish and the petiole was turning black. one was half open and about 5 or more were developing. it was packed with care and a hand written note saying thank you for your order! good growing! smiley face. it was packed with care because there was ceran wrap and i had trouble taking it off because it was so goodly packed and that there was a cup taped over the plant for protectshin i guess. oh, and all the leaves are ground hugging because its dormant which makes it even cuter! i cant wait till the spring when it starts to put up larger traps! and maybe even flower! again, it is really healthy and i definitley recommend you buy this and buy from flytrapstore and i will be back to get another flytrap sooner or later! oh, and also, ive been waiting so long to get this and i snagged it right when it came in stock. it comes in a 12 oz. flytrapstore pot and plantes in spagnum peat moss and drains really well. its a good addishin to my collection of vft's. and everyone should get this for your a collection. i really appreesheate these growers for sending out quality, oversized plants.

Very Beautiful B52 with Dense, Even, Upright Growth Pattern
I finally found a B52 in stock and ordered one young plant, potted. I received it in excellent condition a few days after ordering. A note said it is still transitioning from dormancy. I called my wife to come look after I unpacked it and her eyes lit up and she said "WOW"......Yes, this plant is very beautiful, has an even, dense but well balanced upright growth pattern with many traps, too many to count, over 25 traps and most of the traps are fully formed and open with nice red coloring in the traps. Largest trap measured 7/8 inch with nice red coloring inside. We are very pleased with this B52 Venus Flytrap.

Great plant that lives up to its reputation.
Easily lives up to its reputation of being a hardy, large, and colorful plant. Currently has the largest traps in my collection. While many plants may rival it for trap size, it's still a plant everyone should own.

Just received my B-52 today and was totally blown away at the size of these VFTs when I opened the box. I had seen these last year but waited to late to try and snag one. Was lucky enough to purchase one at the right time this year as these tend to be out of stock very quickly. I thought the traps on my Vigorous looked pretty big, until I received my B-52. I highly recommend anyone even thinking about this VFT to purchase it when you have the chance. You wont be disappointed buying it here. Great job Matt and Steve and crew in delivering such beautiful plants. You guys are the best.... Review by TOYZ_2 / (Posted on 6/12/2013)
Great Plant!
The shipping was prompt, and the plant was well-packaged and in good shape. I planted it as directed, and after about 1-2 weeks, I noticed new trap growth. The new traps are about 1 to 1.5 inches in length. Overall, the plant is healthy and beautiful. This is a great store; I have been happy with all my purchases.

Don't think twice
Buy your next VFT from flytrapstore.com!!!

Purchased Sunday, processed Monday, arrived Thursday.

The box was labeled with stickers mentioning the importance of the package to the post office mail carriers.

Very well packed and came with detailed instructions.

Plant looks very healthy and the soil and moss were still moist!

Well worth the money!

Thanks Matt

I ordered a young plant and it was huge. Two of the traps were already over an inch big and others were growing. It was also beginning to flower. Fast shipping, amazing plant. Worth every penny.

Well worth the money
Just got my B52 today. The plant is still dormant so it's hard to tell how much growing it really has to do. However, it's bigger in its dormant stage than a different VFT in its growing stage that I had ordered elsewhere so I'm very hopeful. Can't wait to see how big it gets!

B52 is a great plant
I bought a B52 last November. The plant has proven to be vigorous with huge fully functional traps. I have mine on a porch railing in full sun in a 4 inch diameter ceramic pot in a saucer. It has bloomed repeatedly. The largest traps are over 1.5 inches long and nicely colored. They catch mostly small wasps.

I did not expect it to bee so large
Okay so I ordered a b-52 venus flytrap and I said to myself ( Okay its just a typical venus flytrap with larger traps big deal hey in fact it probably wont be any larger than my store bought one ), and boy I was wrong. So I bought a one year old venus flytrap and when it got here it amazed me on how big it was... AND IT WAS JUST ONE YEAR OLD THATS RIGHT and what amazed me even more it was bigger than my store bought 3 year old typical and was about the size of my akai ryu venus flytrap and it came with such nice red coloring and some traps were even puple but not as puple as my big mouth but it is still a beutiful plant. And now I know my Mat loves this varity of venus flytrap and I dont blame him. Good job Mat and his crew keep up the good work.

Wow! A real beauty!
I purchased a "young" potted B52 plant, and it is a real beauty!. I've been buying and growing VFTs since the 60's, and I can tell you without reservation these are the healthiest plants I've ever purchased, bar none. What they sell as a young plant is several years older than what others call "mature".

I highly recommend this seller!

B52 = Big traps! :)
I bought this Venus Flytrap cultivar as a bare root, dormant plant. It arrived in great shape and I planted it soon after receiving it. It came out of dormancy fine and so far (less than a year), it's doing very well. It's only spring, but the new traps on the B52 are already bigger than those on a 3 year old Akai Ryu.

It came with a small plantlet already growing off the rhizome and that's still doing well too. Because I keep my plants outdoors in direct, full sun, the interior of the traps are reddish. One odd thing on my B52 is that most of the trap leaves are growing from one side.

If you get a chance, I'd recommend getting this cultivar - along with it's very large traps, it seems very robust and hardy.

I ordered one these fellows a few weeks back and boy is this sucker big. I actually decided to buy another because I thought this specific flytrap was very special and very interesting. I encourage anyone to buy one if they are available!

Best VFT evar!
I got my B52s in January and here at the end of March, they are already HUGE with a nice seed stem! Sturdy and vigorous growth with an fantastic pinkish flesh color in the trap (may not be normal given that all the pics I've seen of the B52 are 100% green, but it is absolutely beautiful and the plants are very healthy).

Of course Matt and Steve have always surpassed my expectations with delivery and quality of the plants. Wonderful job guys and thank you for such commitment to the customer as well as the plant cultivars.

Now, if I could only get one of those DC XLs on my wish-list, I could have something to compare to this amazing B52 giant! ;-)

Worth it!
I've purchased VFTs from BugBitingPlants and several other online stores. The flytraps from here are far superior. These guys do quality work and my B52 looks fantastic.

Great Plant
My plants arrived in great condition! They were among the easiest plants to pot because the leaves grow quite tall. The traps are definitely bigger on this plant than any other breed of VFT I have. A must have for any collection.

What can I say other than what is obvious? I got a young B52 w/ 7 VERY LARGE traps(1 is dying though) easily over an inch each. I cant wait until this bad boy matures more.....he's the center piece of my collection. Got this with a 5 plant mystery box and Matt even threw in 10 baby VFT's. Best service from the best. Thanks again.

B52 Stands out as the largest VFT, and FTS makes it look even better!
I bought a young B52, and i'm amazed by the big traps it has thrown. B52 is truly the largest VFT ever, and coming from the FTS means is a plant that if young, appears like a mature B52, with extensive root system, and really healthy with strong green color!
Packing as always perfect, and the shipping is fair!

My personal favorite FT clone
B52 is my favorite fly trap. You gotta love those BIG traps on long, tall leaves.

FlyTrapStore is the ONLY place I will buy these from!!
When you buy a B52 from Matt and Steve, you can be sure it really IS a B52!

Their quality FAR exceeds all others, and I know this because I have bought
plants from all the legitimate growers.
They will not ship a plant unless it is healthy and hearty enough to thrive.

FTS is the best, period! (originally posted on 6/10/11)

A favorite of mine
Have ordered 2 mature plants so far. I really LOVE these LARGE traps and
now that I know how to acclimate, I expect to get more.
I like the tall and sturdy leaves and they seem to be hardy and I notice a bit
more new growth every day.
It's very important to acclimate these to sun very slowly, placing in the shade or diffused light for a week, then transfering to a windowsill for another few weeks before you introduce them to direct sun (but not really hot sun) for a few hours a day untill the roots are strong.
The outer leaves will likely dye back after potting, that's no problem.

Very easy to pot since the leaves are tall and not curved and short.

Surprised nobody's reviewed this guy!
This plant is often referred to as "The world's largest venus fly trap." Mine is still young, but seeing pics the statement above can be verified. Mine is growing very vigorously, and putting out larger traps than many of my other venus fly traps! If you get a chance, pick up this somewhat rare vft! (originally posted on 5/30/11)
