Like most plants, Venus flytraps conduct photosynthesis, and they get nutrients from the air and soil. However, because of the poor soil where they live, they are much healthier when they supplement their diet with insects. This species eats insects by catching them in its leaf traps and then digesting them. The trap will open 5-12 days later and release the exoskeleton of the insect, since this cannot be digested. The Venus flytrap is continually growing new leaf traps. Each one can only digest about three different insects before it turns black and falls off. Even if it is opening and closing on nothing, it can only do so about seven times. That's why it's best not to poke a Venus flytrap. It may seem like harmless fun, but it costs the plant energy and hurts the trap, causing the plant to need a new one without gaining any energy from insects. ▶@ovnisvideoscom, all the news you will love ! ▶Follow: #ovnisvideoscom ▶Contact: ovnisvideos.news@gmail.com ▶Shop: @ovnisvideosshop ▶Website: www.ovnis-videos.com ▶#ovnisvideoscom #ufology #ufos #ovnis #aliens #extraterrestre #space #spaceships #universe #asteroides #mars #spacex #elonmusk #nasa #esa #sciences #tesla #nature #tech #futuristic #robotics #bostondynamics #tsunami #storm #earthquake #tornado #informatique #paranormal #cinema #news
