I adore venus fly traps. We had one for about a year and then my boyfriend killed it somehow. I think he forgot to water it.
It was funny when we bought it. I saw it at a Home Depot and had to have it. We brought it to the checkout counter where a Hispanic person was a cashier. She looked the plant over and read the label. She read out loud "Carniverous". She then looked at us in surprise and said "It eats meat?" Bob nodded merrily and told her we were going to let it nibble on our fingers. She seemed horrified
I was good and told her it eats small bugs. She didn't seem much happier with that idea.
