What You Should Know about the Venus FlyTrap Venus Flytraps are plants that get their nutrients from the air and the soil just like other plants. But they do have an unusual quality; they can also eat meat which isn’t something most plants can do. People are really fascinated by these carnivorous plants that are native to the Carolinas. Unfortunately, the fascination that people have for this plant has led to it becoming endangered. Finding Venus Flytraps in their native swamplands would be like finding a needle in a haystack. Most Venus Flytraps come from greenhouses.

Venus Flytraps have huge leaves that fold in on each other like to lips that look a lot like a mouth. Inside of the mouth of Venus Flytraps are hair-like structures.

5 Uses For Pets
Even though the Venus Flytrap closes shut the instant something touches its petals, it does have the ability to think about what it is eating. If something really tiny (like a gnat for instance) gets ensnared, Venus Flytraps will let them go because they are too small to provide any real nourishment. If a piece of trash, or something else that is inedible falls into the plant, it will reject it. After the plant has trapped a meal, the leaves have the ability to constrict, insuring that the prey does not get away. It then produces digestive juices, like the ones inside of a human stomach, that dissolves the inside of the insects (which is primarily what Venus Flytraps eat) but not the hard exoskeleton that many insects have. The Venus Flytrap does not eat the outside of the insect but instead spits it out just like it would a piece of paper or rock that might happen to fall into its mouth. It can take a Venus Flytrap between five and twelve days to eat a meal. How long it takes a Venus Flytrap to digest prey depends on a lot of things including how old the plant is, how big the prey is and the weather. This is the reason why the plant doesn’t waste it’s time eating small bugs: the digest process takes too long. To many people’s surprise, the Venus Flytrap is not a hard plant to grow. You don’t need much if you would like to grow them. You’ll just need to keep the roots wet and provide it with plenty of sunlight. The soil that Venus Flytraps normally grow in isn’t very nutrient rich. The Venus Flytrap needs to eat meat to supplement its diet because if it only depended on getting its nutrients from the soil it would die. So, worrying about the soil and the soil levels is one less headache when you grow Venus Flytraps. This is very strange plant indeed and is the subject of a lot legends.
