Venus Fly Trap - Dionaea Muscipula

Quick Overview

The Venus Fly Trap (Dionaea muscipula) is the most well known species of carnivorous plants.



These insectivorous plants lure their prey using a sweet smelling nectar. When an insect lands on the head of the fly trap, they seek the source of the nectar, and if the plant is lucky, it will touch one of the many trigger hairs located within the jaws of the trap.



Once 2 hairs are triggered, the trap snaps closed, trapping the victim. The plant then secretes an enzyme which essentially 'dissolves' the insect, turning it into a digestible dinner.



After a few days, the fly trap will re-open, to await it's next victim.



Fly Traps DO NOT need fertilizer, the insects which they consume provide them with all the nutrients they need. Keep them in a dish with rainwater in the base, so they are kept very wet at all times.



Hardy enough to grow outside at the edge of a garden pond . Each leaf trap can open and close about 7 times in its life, so PLEASE dont make the traps close unnecessarily by touching them.
