Venus fly trap – The Private Life of Plants – David Attenborough – BBC wildlife.
There was Drosera binata from Australia and New Zealand.
Heliamphora species included Heliamphora nutans from the tepui table mountains of Venezuela and Guyana.
Various carnivorous plants were also for sale, including Utricularia longifolia from Brazil. This is a bladderwort relative; though it eats worms, not small freshwater crustaceans like European bladderworts.
Bladderworts are the world’s fastest trapping carnivorous plants – suck in prey in less than a millisecond: here.
Endangered Venus Flytrap Poached for Profit: here.
The Venus flytrap digests and absorbs its prey, but how does it coordinate digestion and absorption to maximise the efficiency of this highly evolved mechanism? A new study that combines direct recordings from cells within the trap along with molecular characterization of nutrient transport reveals a complex and coordinated suite of mechanisms that underlie this elegant process: here.

Conservation works! A flower, once thought extinct, will come off the U.S.’ endangered species list: here.
