My first carnivorous little plant

Today my friend Tatyana gave me a present, something I’ve wanted for a very long time. We’ve been working on our garden together and she got me a carnivorous little Venus fly trap. I’m so excited about it. It’s a marvelous little plant! It’s so tiny too. Each of its mouths is only about the size of a nickel. I repotted it as soon as she gave it to me and right now it’s getting fat and happy on my porch. Already three of its mouths have captured bugs.

Apparently, it only grows naturally in the Carolinas and its habitat is in danger. Here is a page all about these plants.

And here is my plant:

  1. Lovely! I had one of these for a few months, but my climate is so dry that it was impossible to keep the plant humid enough.
