Dionaea ‘Paradisia’ grows mostly decumbent leaves that are up to 12 cm long, bearing traps that reach 4cm in length.
The most distinctive characteristic of this cultivar is the colouration of the traps, which vary greatly depending upon light intensity. Specimens grown exposed to direct sunlight develop suffused reddish colouration across the inner surfaces of the trap lobes, sometimes with red flecks and speckles, while most other parts are light yellowish orange.
The margins of the trap lobes and the marginal lashes often suffuse pure reddish purple, and the leaf bases may be reddish towards the rhizome. During late summer and autumn, the colouration intensifies and specimens may suffure pure reddish purple.
Dionaea ‘Paradisia’ grows and matures quickly, and can produce leaves throughout winter and early spring when most other Dionaea are dormant.
