The Venus Flytrap really is a fascinating plant and who hasn't stuck their finger into one of its trapping leaves as a child? When I was a child, I dared it in a gardening shop once and was caught by the gardener. He friendly reminded me that it
weakens the plant when it closes its trapping leaves without getting nutrition. You don't need to "feed" your venus flytrap as a few insects per year are sufficient for it. However, if you do anyways, only feed it living and no dead insects that maximally have a third of the size of their blossoms. Only insects that move trigger the digestive reaction.
The venus flytrap originates from the Pocosin Moors in North and South Carolina in the USA and only exists wildly there.

Now, patience is demanded: It takes approx. 3-4 years until a fully grown, carnivorous plant has developed from the seeds.

Cold germination: Sowing period outdoors at the beginning of spring or in autumn. Light germination! Alternatively, artificial stratification is possible. Mix the seeds with moist sand in a plastic bag. The bag has to be remained warm and moist (approx. +20) in the first 2-4 weeks and placed in the fridge afterwards, where it should remain at approx. +5°C for 5-6 weeks. Afterwards, take the plastic bag out and regularly watch at room temperature if the seeds germinate. Then, prick the seedlings in pots and plant them outdoors after the last frosts in mid-May. As a marsh plant, it needs particular carnivore soil.
