FTS Purple Ambush

Availability: Out of stock

Limited Reserve Plant. A stunning beauty of a flytrap, FTS Purple Ambush develops intensely reddish purple interior traps. Out of the thousands of flytraps we grow here at the FlytrapStore, it has the deepest red colored traps of any plant we've seen.


FTS Purple Ambush is certainly an eye-catcher that is worthy of a place in anyone's Venus fly trap collection. A low-growing plant, beautiful ground-hugging, deep purple traps create a striking contrast with the green leaves. It is a plant that will turn some heads!

BY FAR the best flytrap i bought from here, i have the Alien, Fts archangel, BCP Z11, and they all pale in comparison to this one ( except maybe Alien because those teeth are amazing). Very happy with purchase

Beautiful coloration
I ordered a potted starter plant and I am very happy with my purchase! It is so colorful even though it is very young. I can't wait to see this little guy grow!

Gorgeous, colorful, and vigorous Venus Fly Trap specimen
I ordered a young plant in April 2014. When I got it there was a cut flower stem on it. I decided to cut that off completely and see if it would still be possible to propagate from that piece. Good news is it grew into a separate plant and I was able to trade that with a member of the forum for another pricey plant.

It is now almost March 2015 and my original plant has grown considerably. The coloring of the mouth is a beautiful blood-red (not as magenta as the pictures, but that may have to do with the lighting). There are multiple growth points, and I will have to divided it at some time in the future. I still consider this plant young, so while it has divided I hope it will grow bigger over time as well.

I consider it a very good showpiece cultivar.
