Learn to Propagate and Grow Venus Flytraps

Registration required:

 Come if you dare, as we surgically separate venus flytraps and replant them. Take one home to study.

Although it is possible to grow one from a seed, who wants to wait 2-4 years!

In this laboratory experience, students learn and practice the propagation method of bulb division. They divide a bulb, place divisions in damp peat, record observations, and harvest dozens of flytrap plantlets. They can also identify and investigate the variables that affect this process. A productive experiment will end with dozens of healthy venus flytrap plants. Students may opt to plant them up and take them home.

This series of carnivorous plant lab investigations is based on scientific inquiry standards of the National Science Education Standards, and are consistent with State Learning Objectives. Students have the opportunity to think and act like scientists during these investigations. Written and classroom-tested by Michael Szesze, Awarding Winning Science Teacher (source).

Note: Sharp blades will be used for this procedure.  All children younger than 10 will need to be assisted by a parent or guardian.
