Venus Flytrap Fun Facts
🪴The only place in the entire world where Venus flytraps grow naturally is in North and South Carolina. The plant requires poor, low-quality soil to grow properly. This is why they are a carnivorous species. Their lives depend on the nutrients provided by insects.
🪴Did you know, that technicians in the United States and in South Korea have built robot replicas of the Venus flytrap, which can catch and digest its meals for fuel!
🪴According to Apple Pest Control, When prey is captured, the flytrap secretes a liquid in a way that a human stomach functions. The digestive system of a flytrap is slow, taking as many as 10 days to completely digest insects and reopen its trap. However, Venus flytraps cannot digest exoskeletons. Instead, when its trap reopens, it spits out the bones of the insects.
🪴Even though Venus flytraps are carnivorous plants, they cannot eat the same types of meat a human can. If you feed flytrap meat that humans eat, it will turn black, rot and die.
🪴The lobes on the plant that opens to trap insects only have a limited number of lives. After each capture, the lobes of the plant remain closed for roughly a week and a half, preventing it from receiving additional nutrients. The lobes can only open and close around half a dozen times before it is permanently close. The trap will continue to photosynthesize to provide nutrients to the plant but will be unable to trap unsuspecting insects.
🪴During the darker parts of the day, the plant emits a fluorescent blue light to attract bugs.
🪴This maroon version is a hybrid as it has been created.
