Hello everyone,

I have a temporary surplus of baby Red Piranha flytraps. I'm selling them at $25 (including shipping) for 5 plants. Chances are good that you'll get quite a few more than 5 of them if you order.

I know many of you really like the Red Piranha clone, so here's a chance to get enough of them to make a nice mother pot.

If you'd like to purchase some, please send PayPal payment to sales@flytrapcare.com. Be sure to make a note that the payment is for baby Red Piranhas and be sure to include the address that you want the plants shipped to.

I also created a fixed-price listing on eBay if you'd like to get an idea of size for these babies:
Baby Red Piranha eBay listing
But it's better for us if you purchase them directly instead of through eBay because we don't get charged the eBay fees.

I'll post back here when they're gone.

Thanks for looking!

Very nice Matt,
I feel like i want to buy them and fill myself with more VFT's!!! I have spent so much money on clones and the babies you sent, that i'm left with a few bucks :D .

Thought i'm still interested in the other VFT's that you haven't put on the store yet, any ideas when they will be on stock?

Thank you, and good luck with the sale, i know they will get sold very fast! :)
Whoever gets them, post pics! :D

Payment sent!! Are these TC babies? I'd assume so. Do I need to introduce them to sunlight slowly or are they totally hardened off?

I put a note with my address and a reminder that it's for the baby red piranhas. Thanks so much, Matt!!

Yep, they're TC babies. They should be pretty hardened off to sunlight now. I let them go through a proper dormancy last winter and I've been setting them outside on sunny days. They spent most of the day today outside on the deck soaking up the sun :)

And now that I look back at it, I'm pretty sure I miscounted. Lol! I think there are about 15, in fact.

They look well potted Michael and I'm glad that you're happy with them. The largest ones could reach a good size by the end of the growing season. It seems like Red Piranha is one of the slower clones to exit dormancy, so those little guys appear especially small right now. Once they break dormancy and start putting up their upright growth, they should look quite a bit larger. Enjoy them :)

I was able to get the 6 plant mystery box, which included a Red Piranha, so I can not complain.
