The Venus fly trap is an imaginative carnivorous plant that can actively catch insects with its trapping leaves by closing of the two leaf halves. Nice plant for at home or in a swamp in the garden, swamp / bowl or along the pond, can survive the winter but must then be somewhat covered by moss species such as e.g. low-growing sphagnum moss species, or cover it in winter. It can also be kept indoors in the winter so it can continue growing..
