Is it just me, or does everyone love venus fly traps? I just got one at a farm stand/general store on the way home from a hike. I put it in my kitchen near my compost bucket and the next day it had caught a fruit fly!
I noticed a dead fly on my back steps the next day, so decided to try and feed it to my plant. I think my eyes were bigger than it’s stomach so to speak, because it couldn’t quite wrap it’s jaws around the fly. I’m giving the plant a break from force feeding it. Turns out if you play with the traps too much, you can kill the plant. I think I’ll just stick to watering it and let it catch whatever size fly it likes.
