Venus Fly Trap - Dionaea muscipula
Are you looking for a natural insecticide? Then take a look at Dionaea muscipula. Venus Fly Trap is probably the most famous of all carnivorous plants. It eats bugs. It has too or it will die. It has trigger hairs on the surface and needs 2 of them to be touched before it closes. This prevents a raindrop from triggering the trap to close. Venus Fly Trap like to live in a bog, so that means wet roots, high humidity, and 6-8 hours of full sun (or 10 hours of artificial lighting). This type of carnivorous plant is occasionally flooded in its natural habitat so it doesn’t mind sitting in water all the time.
