    Poor Venus. She’s probably beyond mortified that the plant that bears her name is a monstrous, remorseless, carnivore (yet she dated the God of War at one time — why?)!

    Nothing more crude than a burping Venus Fly-Trap!

    The Venus Fly Trap. The only carnivorous plant that has hinged jaws. Electrocutes its meals. Was only found in South Carolina in an area where an ancient meteor had fallen…

    I wonder what Venus would think of a Triffid? Maybe not tell her.

    Please,

    according to all the stories Venus was vain, self centered, manipulative, and totally without any concern for others, she would eat up men and spit them out with no concern whatever. The plant is well named.
    Of course, the plant is named after the planet which was named for the goddess.
    Just as the days of the week were named after the 7 ancient planets.so Venus has Friday
    Freya’s day, Freya being the Germanic equivalent to Venus.
    Venerdi in Italian. Venus’s day

    Here, Venus, ever see a Sundew or Darlingtonia?

    Some years ago, I got invited to a BLM and FS presentation on chamaecyparus and efforts to stop the blight. Went through several areas outside of Cave Junction. The most noteworthy was having an impromptu meeting in a Darlingtonia fen, standing in about 3" of slowly moving water. At least one tiny Sundew was on the edge of the fen. One of the botanists cut open a dead Darlingtonia and it was filled with insect exoskeletons. Mythtickle’s version of Venus would freak to see that.

    Seymour was the fellow who grew the plant. The plant was named Audrey II (after the girl he loved).

    Tribbles are animals, Triffids area ambulatory carnivorous plants.
