Venus Flytrap Seeds
This truly unique plant grown from flower seeds is a carnivorous plant. It catches its prey, mainly insects and arachnids, with a trapping structure formed by the terminal portion of each of the plant's leaves and is triggered by tiny hairs on their inner surfaces.
The speed of the Venus flytrap closing can vary depending on the amount of humidity, light, size of prey, and general growing conditions. The speed with which traps close can be used as an indicator of the Venus flytrap's general health.
