Brilliant starter kits - to get your scary carnivorous plant, meat eating!

Venus Fly Trap Fiends Plant Kit With Micro Terrarium

Don't crowd your Carnivorous Plant!

Although some of the images on this page, show a meat eating plant under some sort of plastic shelter - like a green house, it's not a good idea to keep your carnivorous plant sheltered like that. They need room to breathe and fresh air to grow in! It's fine to start them off like that, but once the seedlings appear and you have your own mini meat eater plant established, let it out in the open!

Did you know the Scientific name for a Venus Fly Trap is:

Dionaea Muscipula

Probably the Most Famous Carnivorous and Meat Eating Plant... - Buy the Movie Poster for Little Shop of Horrors...

The Little Shop of Horrors!

If you haven't seen this film, I thoroughly recommend it, it's a lot of fun.

The imagery is iconic, as is the music.

...and of course, it's about a big venus fly trap that grows...and grows...

Do not feed Humans to your Carnivorous Plant

...or hamburgers! There is too much fat and protein, that the carnivorous venus fly trap can't digest. All that will happen, is your beautiful Dionaea muscipula will rot and die, and we don't want that, do we?

This "Sensitive" plant is REALLY cool...the slightest touch to it, will make the leaves close up!
