The Venus Flytrap, Dionaea muscipula is a small, carnivorous plant that catches and digests insects. The plant's leaves (terminal lobes) have tiny hairs, which trigger the trap to close when an insect comes close.

  • The trapping mechanism is so specialised that it can distinguish between living prey and non-prey stimuli such as falling raindrops.
  • These are treated as house plants here in the UK and many people keep them in the hope they will keep flies at bay.
  • Venus flytraps like to be kept moist.
  • Always use rainwater or filtered water rather than tap water.
  • Keep out of direct sunlight.
  • Please note that these plants are small, they are naturally low-growing and not huge traps as some people imagine!
  • Sold in a 12cm pot.
