When an insect touches the hairs, the hinge mechanism is triggered, and the leaves close relatively all of a sudden, trapping the insect. Grow this in a terrarium or in a cool greenhouse or in a bog garden. Hardy from zones 6 – 10. Requires acidic soil that may be on a regular basis moist and very little fertilizer. Partial to full sun. Overview: Average mature height: Under 6 inches tall. Soil: Canadian peat moss or peat moss/perlite mixture. Light: Full to part sun. Zones: 6 – 10.
