Venus Fly Traps:  Venus Fly Traps By Ashley Brown Introduction:  Introduction I will be talking about the Venus Fly Trap or also called Dioaea Huscipula. I’ll tell you: Where you can find it. What it is and how it works. When it grows. How to feed and water it. What kind of soil would be good for it. Some different types of Venus Fly Traps. What temperature they like the best. How much they cost. Where You Can Find It:  Where You Can Find It It’s Found in wet damp places. They live mostly in South America and parts of North America. Royal Red What Is A Venus Fly Trap And How Does It Work.:  What Is A Venus Fly Trap And How Does It Work. It’s the most well known Carnivorous plant. They lure their prey by using a sweet smelling nectar. If the prey touches one of the venuses’ trigger hairs which is on the trap, it will snap catching the prey and will start to dissolve it turning it into a liquid. This will go down the stem and be used for energy and protein in the digestive process and will take five to twelve days. After a few days of digestion the trap will re-open and be ready to start all over again. Red Dragon When Does It Grow?:  When Does It Grow? Grows manly from March to October. They are dormant in the winter but still continue to grow from the chemicals and metalabolic changes in the bulb of the plant. Cup Trap Red Pirahan Feeding:  Feeding Do not feed it normal plant food. Make insects available. Don’t tease it with your hand, fingers or other objects because it will wear out and die. Watering:  Watering Place in a pot of soil with 1in of clear cool fresh water from the start of growth. From the beginning of the resting period only water to keep moist. Resting period is from November 1, to April 1. Soil:  Soil Use 60/40 mix of peat and silica sand in a minimum of a 4 inch pot. Regal Red Light and Temp:  Light and Temp If it is placed on the south, south-east,.south west or west facing a windowsill it will do fine as far as light.
