Like how most decisions start, me getting a venus flytrap was a joke I made with my friend. And then we found ourselves at home depot, picking out the best looking flytrap there.
We named all of the individual heads, so there's Piranha, Danny Devito, Chain Chomp, Noodle, Waffle, and Clover. When I was re-potting it I unearthed a few more, so they don't have names yet.
I put mine in a vase with sand and the moss that the plant came with. It sits on my desk so it can be in the sun and I spray it with a spray bottle about every other day. About a week ago I fed it an ant for the first time.
It's crazy to think that an insect that has a mind and a body and can move and breathe and live can be dominated by a plant that has no eyes or ears or a heart. Its funny how nature works sometime.
The flytrap keeps trying to bloom, and online it said that you shouldn't let it do that because the plant might die. Other than that, things seem to be going well for my venus flytrap. I'm exciting to take it to college, since I'm afraid my betta's won't last the five hour journey in the car to my new college town. I'm also lowkey scared of showing up to college with three betta's and having my roommate think I'm weird. But a venus flytrap is totally normal.
