The Venus Fly Trap
(1) A Beautiful Plant!
Its dark green leaves form a low symmetrical rosette. Each leaf is tipped with a lovely pink trap.
(2) Eats Flies And Insects!
Each pink trap contains a bit of nectar. It is this color and sweetness which attracts the unsuspecting insect. Once he enters the trap, it snaps shut. Digestive juices then dissolve him.
