These are Triantha Occidentalis! The newly discovered carnivorous plant which is also called the Western False Asphodel. These are small starters for you to enjoy and watch grow, and are about 1-3 inches in height in a 2.5 tall pot.

The Triantha was first described back in 1879 by Sereno Watson. A group of scientists discovered its carnivorous nature back in 2021, and noted that the flower stalks produced a sticky substance that was catching small bugs. It won't catch larger bugs like bees or flies, however, it will catch fungus gnats, small spiders, thrips and fruit flies.

The Triantha Occidentalis can be found in the pacific northwest from California to Oregon growing in boggy conditions, very similar to other carnivorous plants.
