Venus' flytrap

Dionea muscipula

The most famous of all carnivorous plants, these perennials are grown from seed. They hold their open traps in the air, like a clamshell. The outer margins are lined with cilia. A sweet nectar lures insects who trigger tiny hairs and it snaps shut. Each trap usually lasts for about three meals, then dies and should be trimmed off.
