Every leaf of the Dionaea looks like a little mouth with teeth. If a fly lands on it, the 'mouth' snaps shut. Then the Venus fly trap digests the fly. Snapping shut costs the plant a lot of energy, so it's best not to touch the leaves. The carnivorous plant is easy to care for. The soil should be kept slightly damp at all times. When watering the plant, don't pour anything on the plant itself, only on the soil! It's best to keep the soil drier in the winter. Find the Dionaea a bright spot in indirect sun. It's best if the plant can sit in a dish that always has some water in it. Bring it on, flies!

The Venus Flytrap is a unique houseplant. When planting, preferably use moss peat compost or a soil mixture that is low in nutrition. Choose a wide, shallow pot with holes in the base. put some soil in the pot and plant the root ball of the Venus Flytrap at the correct depth. Fill with soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting. Place the pot in a bright, warm place, but protect the plant from direct sunlight. Stand in a saucer that is always filled with water during the growing season. When the humidity is low make sure that the soil remains damp.
The Venus Flytrap does not like lime and prefers to be watered with rainwater or tap water that has been boiled and cooled. The soil can be constantly moist since it originally grows in swamp-like areas. Place a saucer under the pot to retain a constant supply of water. It isn't necessary to give plant food, in fact, too much food is bad for this plant. In winter, keep it in a dry, cool area. You may notice the Venus Flytrap lose some of its leaves, but it'll be up and running again in the spring!
