Dionaea Muscipula - Venus Fly Trap
Originally a native to Carolina in the USA, now widely propagated and probably the best known carinvorous plant.
The traps are triggered by insects when they touch the hairs inside the trap. Each half has 3 hairs, only 2 need to be touched to trigger the trap, a single touch will not trigger the trap, so as to not waste energy closing on raindrops or other means.
Venus fly traps can live for 20 or 30 years, but need a cold winter each year for successful growth.
Seeds should be given a period of cold stratification for best germination.
