The Venus Fly Trap is a carnivorous plant native to the subtropical wetlands of North and South Carolina. It catches its prey chiefly insects and arachnids, with a trapping structure formed by the terminal portion of each plant's leaves that trigger by tiny hairs on their inner surfaces. When an insect or spider crawling along the leaves contacts a hair, the trap closes if a different hair is contacted within twenty seconds of the first strike.

This intriguing carnivorous plant, whose leaves "snap" shut to trap insects. With their 'fanged jaws' and live prey-catching behaviour, they can attract a lot of attention, whether on a window sill or balcony corner. With a bit of research and some tender love and care, you too can raise your own version of these bizarre and beautiful plants.

Tips:

Watering your plant is very much a cause and effect event. If your plant is looking good - green, shiny and healthy looking - then you are doing the right things. If it is wilting, yellow or spotted, not much new growth, you need to review your watering habits and make adjustments.

Improper watering is the main cause of death with indoor houseplants. Usually this would be from overwatering. Overwatering is usually caused by watering your houseplants too often; not by the amount of water given but the frequency of times in watering your plants.

The amount and interval of watering for each plant is different and depends on a variety of factors. These include the type of plant, the pot size, the soil and growing medium, the light intensity, the weather and the micro environment condition, the amount of foliage and the overall health of the plant.

The general rule of thumb is that you should only water a houseplant if the top of the soil feels dry. Water deeply, thoroughly and infrequently!
