Carnivorous plants, also called insectivorous plants, capture and digest insects and other animals. While there are hundreds of species of carnivorous plants, some common ones in the United States are the Cobra Lily, American Pitcher Plant and the Venus Flytrap. Native to the southeastern United States, the Venus Flytrap is one of the most popular carnivorous plants. It lures insects with its plant nectar, then traps it. After digesting the insect, it opens its "trap" to capture more insects. While it can grow in warm, boggy areas, the Venus Flytrap is also grown as a houseplant or container plant. When considering carnivorous container plants to buy online, consider their light requirements, height and other care instructions.
