Description:
Grow one of the world's most fascinating plants. There are no other plants as notorious as the infamous Venus Fly Trap plant, which grows jaws that miraculously snap shut on its prey. Venus Fly Traps are as bizarre as they are intriguing. Like all plants, Fly Traps use sunlight to produce energy through photosynthesis. However, because these plants are indigenous to bogs and swamps lacking vital minerals and nutrients in the growing medium, which are necessary for plant growth, they have radically adapted by becoming carnivores. When the plant captures its prey it will digest the insect extracting the necessary provisions unfound in the natural environment.

Venus Fly Traps attract insects to their traps by producing a sweet odor. The leaves of a Venus Fly Trap are covered with fine hairs. When an insect lands on the plant, the pressure on these hairs causes the jaw-like foliage to snap closed, trapping the insect inside. The cilia or hairs on the outer surface of the traps lock together. This forms a prison locking the insect inside.

Native only to the Carolinas, within a small area 100 miles in radius, this rare plant is truly a treat to sprout and cultivate.
