There is nothing Flytrap Fred likes more than to eat a big juicy fly. Fred lies in wait with his jaws open. He emits a pleasant odor to attract his prey. Once a fly investigates the source of that pleasant smell, Fred's jaws snap shut and he devours his prey. He is a fascinating specimen indeed! Flytraps can take some time to sprout, so be patient. Also, be sure to use only distilled water as the chemicals and minerals in water are harmful to meat-eating plants.
