How to care for a Venus flytrap?

You can also feed it dead insects but you have to trigger the little 鈥渉airs鈥?in the trap by hand, otherwise, the Venus Flytrap won鈥檛 accept the food.
Can you feed Venus Fly Trap plants human food?
Also, feeding human food to a Venus flytrap can harm it. Do not feed fruit, candy, meat, chicken, or any human food to your plant. The traps might close when you insert the food in them, but the plant won鈥檛 be capable of digesting it.
How does a Venus Fly Trap work?
How Traps Work. The Venus flytrap’s modified leaves look like hinged green clam shells with long teeth and nectar glands along the edges. Insects attracted to the nectar enter the open trap to feed, activating slender trigger hairs inside the trap. If two or more hairs are touched, the trap partially closes on the insect in less than a second.
How long does it take for the Venus flytrap to digest food?
The digesting process of the insect starts after 15 minutes of feeding when the trap of the Venus Flytrap fully closes.
