Botanical Name: Dionaea muscipula

The Venus Flytrap is a stunning accent to any home or office and makes an excellent gift. Undoubtedly the most popular of all carnivorous plants, the Venus Flytrap's favorite foods are insects! The plant is so named because of its extremely effective insects trapping mechanism. The leafy portion of the plant contains two tooth-edged lobes that fold together when touched. When an insect touches one of the hairs inside, the lobes slam shut, trapping their prey inside a water-tight chamber! Once closed, powerful juices break down the insect's body and the plant absorbs the debris for nutrients.
