Availability: In stock

Limited Reserve Plant. 'Alien' is a Venus fly trap clone originating from Europe that has extremely elongated traps and unique looking teeth that give it the appearance of the terrifying alien from Ridley Scott's famous film. Its traps can grow surprisingly large, and it is a very hardy cultivar.

* Required Fields



Traps, reaching 4cm to 5cm on adult 'Alien' flytraps, are abnormally long and narrow and extremely arched. Marginal lashes are short, pointed and somewhat widely spaced with additional tiny bumbs or nubs between each marginal lash. In addition to often having four or more standard-sized trigger hairs, each trap interior can have dozens of extremely tiny red hairs. Alien's traps can capture prey but often do not close well because the laminae of the trap are thick and brittle.

Really Awesome Flytrap!
If you're looking for a super rare and super cool flytrap, this is the one to get! I ordered this young plant in September and it was very nicely packaged. Not a single leaf turned black during transit and looks to be a very beautiful and hardy plant! Can't wait to grow this one. Thanks again Matt and Leah!

I mulled this purchase over for about a week because of the price, never imagined spending $62 on a small plant but once I received it I was extremely happy. This plant is super rare, and equally as awesome. Plant was larger than I expected for picking up a starter plant and I must have got nearly the last one as they are oos again. Easily one of my favorites in a collection of 30 or so different cultivators.

Amazing plant
Plant was shipped extremely quick and arrived just days after ordering. More than happy with the plant that was delivered. FTS is the only place I will get my plants from because of their quality and care they devote to the plants and it shows.

Finally got an Alien
Was randomly searching the store and saw these were in stock. I know that there are never many foe sale and they go fast so I jumped on it. Got the young plant potted. Very healthy plant arrived. I have had great luck with my plants dividing(the 5 plants I have bought from here are now 14) so I hope by next year will have at least 1 more of these. This is the prize of my collection and I have a dcxl and justina davis (which I just separated into 5 individuals ) . So excited!!!!!!
