The Dionaea muscipula, a Droseraceae family, is a small herbivorous herbaceous plant (not more than 15 cm) native to the United States. The aerial part of the plant, perennial mute according to the seasons. The small fleshy leaves arranged in a rosette around a central point, in the middle of winter, during the period of dormancy, appear prostrate towards the ground, while in summer, they appear beautiful erect. The leaves provided with elongated petioles, called soft teeth, contain sensitive sensors that cause them to close as soon as they are touched. From the center of the rosette in the flowering period a floral stem emerges consisting of small flowers containing tiny seeds similar to those contained in grape berries. Dionea produces flowers between May and June. To avoid unnecessary waste of energy from the plant it is advisable to cut the flower at the base before it can bloom.
