A favourite of kids and adults alike!
These gorgeous little carnivorous plants are easy and fun to grow and fascinating to watch - and they get rid of flies - what more could you want?!
Venus Flytraps are moisture loving plants that grow near marshes and bogs.
They need direct sunlight for healthy growth, so pop your little carnivorous friend on a shallow saucer of water near a bright sunny window. Without sufficient sunlight the leaves will become weak and have reduced colouration.
Cut off flowers as they appear to maximise plant growth.
Don't be tempted to touch the traps to make them close - while it is fun to do, it does reduce the plant’s chances of catching a meal.
Did you know that Venus Fly Traps have short term memory and the ability to taste? Fun Fact!
