Last Tuesday I showed the buds from one of my house plants and asked if anyone could guess what the plant was. Only Jan was brave enough to have a go. Unfortunately Jan it isn't an orchid. In fact it is a Venus Fly Trap. I have had a few over the years but this is the first time I have seen one produce flowers; and over night the first one opened. Nothing spectacular but none the less interesting, to me anyway.
The flower spikes really are long compared with the size of the plant.
