Grow your own feared and famous meat-eating plants. This kit features the infamous Venus Fly Trap. The leaves of a Venus Fly Trap are covered with fine hairs. When an insect lands on the plant, the pressure on these hairs causes the jaw-like foliage to snap closed, trapping the insect inside. Watch these fascinating plants grow from harmless seeds into vicious bug-eating monsters. Safe for ages 4 and up!
