FTS Flaming Lips

FTS Flaming Lips

Availability: Out of stock

A FlytrapStore original clone raised from seed that was harvested in 2008, "FTS Flaming Lips" is one of the most colorful Venus fly traps we have ever laid eyes on. It grows large traps with short, sharp teeth (cilia). "FTS Flaming Lips" was named for its vibrant sunset-shades of color infused across the traps.


FTS Flaming Lips produces large traps capable of reaching nearly 2 inches in size. These extra large traps sit atop long, thick leaf bases that grow very upright during the spring and summer months. The marginal lashes can be dentate-like early in the season, or more sawtooth-like, with many serrations, as the growing season progresses. Trap coloration is intense, with reds, yellows, and oranges displayed on the trap edges and serrated teeth. Anthocyanin production is high for this green-leafed variety, and in winter the plant can turn almost completely red, with deep purple-ish traps. Vigor is exceptional, with a fair number of divisions, but not so many as to slow down the growth of the main plant. Small divisions reach adulthood much more quickly than most other cultivars. Self-pollination of the flowers results in a fair number of red-leafed seedlings, approximately 20%.

Plant arrived extremely healthy and robust, but still at the end of dormancy as expected. Now, about a month later, the true springtime traps have developed, and I am in love. Those arched traps and teeth are striking, and the colors are gorgeous. I wouldn't be surprised if there were 10 plants in this pot with all the babies, and despite being a starter plant, it's already flowering! It's very hard not to become addicted when the plants are this healthy and beautiful!

Another great plant from the Flytrap Store!
This is the 3rd VFT I have bought from Matt and Leah and as usual, my Flaming Lips plant did not disappoint. I received a starter plant and it already has quite a few traps which are turning yellowish-orange. As with all the others, this plant is healthy and can't wait until the summer months when the colors will really start to pop. Thanks again Matt and Leah, you two are tops!

10 plants!!!!!
I've been waiting a while for this one to come in stock and to notice . First off only option was starter planted. I always replant right when they arrive and try to get bareroot, but this was worth it. Had 10 individual plants of differnt size. Plus it's so colorful . What a great cultivar.

I ordered a starter sized plant and it arrived perfectly packaged and very healthy (as always from FTS).

The color of this plant is awesome. It reminds me of an orange, red and yellow sunset. This particular plant grows very vigorously and even though I just ordered it this year, it has already out grown all of my other flytraps.

7/5 I swear!
By far my favorite venus flytrap! I cannot believe how beautiful the plant was when I received it. Even as a starter plant, it had brilliant red and yellow-orange colors. I even got a starter with 3 growing points. Thank you Matt and Leah for cultivating such a gorgeous plant. Worth the wait and every penny!

Colorful plant!
I just received my plant yesterday from Matt, it came in excellent condition! The plant itself is small because I order a small one, but it has amazing beautiful colors. Overall a nice plant to go with my collection! Can't wait for it to mature.

Cant wait for the color
Just got my order of a young FTS Flaming Lips bareroot. It was a pretty good size and the roots were long, but what suprised me was how many growth points it had! It was more like a young plant with a clump of small divisions all around it. It has some color in the traps and i cant wait to see what it'll look like once it's developed more color! Thanks

Can't wait too see how colorful this guy gets!!!
After waiting a full 6 months I finally saw FTS Flaming Lips in stock and I ordered it instantly. As always with FTS when it arrived (it was a starter plant) it was in perfect condition and the soil was still moist. The size was GREAT for a starter plant and one that is beginning to enter dormancy. The color hasn't developed yet but I'm sure that in the summer it will develop beautiful shades of orange, red and yellow. Thank you guys for making the starter plant!!
