Could there be Venus Flytrap on my land?
There are multiple factors that influence whether habitat is appropriate for Venus Flytrap, not the least of which is whether your land is within the historic range where the species occurred (consult the map on our ABOUT page). Below we've compiled a list of questions that can guide you as you search for the answer to the question, Could there be Venus Flytrap on my land?
First answer these questions:
- Do you have longleaf and/or pond pine on your property?
- Does sunlight reach the ground (or is the tree overstory so dense that sunlight never reaches there)?
- Is the soil sandy?
- Is the soil moist or wet for part of the year?
