Grow your own feared and famous meat eating plants.
This kit features the infamous Venus 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.
Interact with your Venus Fly Trap every day! Plant it, water it, watch it grow into a carnivorous plant with attractive foliage. Feed it ants and bugs! Watch fascinating plants grow from harmless seeds into vicious bug-eating monsters!
Grow Your Own Carnivorous Plants and Watch Them Feed!
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 4 years of age.
I've had carniverous plants for over a decade. While my sundews and pitcher plants are doing quite well, my venus fly trap has gotten smaller and less vigorous over the years, so I purchased this micro-terrarium to grow myself another one. It came with what looked like two or three seeds and some empty seed pods; they were so tiny it was hard to tell. Though I kept the soil moist with distilled water as I do for my decade-plus plants, and though I put the terrarium on an east-facing window sill as instructed, the seeds never sprouted. I gave up after three months.

trying again. . .

Hard to rate because. . . We bought these for party prizes. The two that my kids have never sprouted, but it could be because the window we've put them in is too cold. We have two extra so we're trying again. . .
Kids though it was cool
Posted 9/6/2013 by Carole Ann
My three boys (ages 6-8) thought this was really cool. We planted the seeds and are patiently waiting for them to grow. The only down side is that it takes 1-3 MONTHS for the seeds to sprout and they need to be kept moist. We hope it grows!
