That Mystery Plant

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.

Venus Flytrap

The flower spikes really are long compared with the size of the plant.


  1. I would never, ever have thought of that John :-) You must be doing something right if it's flowering, well done! I have seen them in garden centres and wondered about buying one but never quite got 'round tuit' ;-)

    1. It does look a lot healthier that the ones I have had in the past.

  2. Never seen one flower before John.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
