Contains approximately 20 seeds. Easily the most widely recognized carnivorous plant, the Venus flytrap is a true classic. With their fanged, gaping traps, and their truly remarkable feeding action, there is nothing else in the world like it. When an insect comes in contact with the tiny trigger-hairs inside of the Venus flytrap's mouth, the trap will shut in a fraction of a second. The insect will then be digested by the Venus flytrap over several days. Venus flytraps are temperate perennials, which means they require a Winter dormancy. During this time, your Venus flytrap's growth will slow or cease completely and the plant may appear to be completely dead.
