An Amazing Plant!

This plant is actually ALIVE! I mean, duh, every plant is alive unless it's dead but the plant I'm talking about is the exotic venus fly trap. These plants are so incredible to me, sorry for sounding like a dork lol. Anyhows, I don't want to bore you guys && give you a minituare class about them but from what I read, I will narrow it to this; This remarkable plant actually does catch flies, it's not just a random name. Simply by the plant producing a sweet smell (like sugar) in their mouth, they keep it open && when the fly realizes the sweet smell, they can't resist && rest on it but... SNAP closes the plant's mouth:]] I would love to own one but I need to know more && what not lol. Don't you think this plant is pretty... cool!? Lol.

I know girl, learned about this longgggg ago lol, I just don't remember much. Especially the fact you told me they live shortly even after the "correct" care?
