Perhaps, many people think that talking about carnivorous plants refers to species that only exist in books of fantastic tales.
However, this type of plant does exist, and one of the best knowns of them is the Venus flytrap. Its scientific name is Dionaea muscipula, and it belongs to the Droseraceae family.
The Venus flytrap is so named because it traps insects and spiders in its leaves, which act as traps.
This plant is native to the states of North Carolina and South Carolina in the United States. Despite its difficulty, the Venus flytrap is cultivated in different parts of the world.
Venus flytrap is a carnivorous plant known as Dionaea muscipula. Among the more than 600 species of carnivorous plants on the planet, this is the most popular.
The Venus flytrap is a small plant formed by several thick leaves, from 4 to 8, which grow at ground level forming a rosette.
At the ends of these, and after a long petiole, develop two lobes topped with tiny cilia and joined by a hinge.
Inside there are hairs or trichomes that warn the plant when prey lands on it, and so the leaf lobes close to trap it.
At that moment, the digestive process begins thanks to glands that release enzymes.
These degrade the insect so that the plant quickly assimilates it. After about ten days, when the digestion process lasts, the lobes open again.
It has a flower stalk in the form of a cluster, which can produce from 2 to 10 white flowers.
