VENUS FLYTRAPS (Dionaea Muscipula)

  • A venus fly trap is a carnivorous plant which means that it feeds on insects and is classed as a plant predator
  • Venus fly traps are native to small coastal areas of North- and South Carolina in the USA
  • The venus fly trap is best known for its ability to trap and digest flies, muggies, other insects and slugs.Β  During the growing season each plant grows 4-7 leaves from the growth point just above the soil level - these are modified leaves that develop a traps at the end.Β  Each trap is lined with 3-5 trigger hairs that snaps shut when touched.Β  The trap is fused on one end and acts like jaws trapping its prey inside and digesting the insect by means of enzymes
  • In a nutshell, venus flytraps are outdoor, summer growing plants that require 6+ hours direct sunlight, mineral free water and nutrient deficient soil. Ideal temperatures during the growing season (October to April) is 25-30degrees and slightly shaded for the hottest part of the day during heatwaves. During the wintermonths they die back to a dormant bulb with tiny inactive traps and regrow as the days get longer around September to October
