How does it work?
Venus fly traps are carnivorous plants, native to subtropical wetlands that can be low in Nitrogen, an essential element for plant growth, therefore they need to source nitrogen from insects and arachnids.

When an unsuspecting insect lands on the "leaf jaws", it brushes against tiny hairs on the inner surface of the plant. When trigger hairs are touched, the plant jaws shut and digestive juices are secreted to break down the insect and make nitrogen available to the plant for absorption.
