The Venus Flytrap plant is a species that grows in the jungle but can be grown as a houseplant when cultivated in decorative horticulture. The plant belongs to a small group of higher plants capable of fast movements.
The Venus Flytrap (Dionaea muscipula) is one of the species of carnivorous plants, meaning a very specialized form of foliar feeding. The edges of the leaves form the trap. In nature, it feeds on insects and spiders; sometimes, slugs can get into it. It grows in a humid temperate climate on the Atlantic coast of the USA (Florida, North and South Carolina, New Jersey).
