Hype in garden centres all over the world: carnivorous plants for dealing with mosquitos

By chance the Dutchman Chris van der Velde discovered a carnivorous plant that attracts and devours mosquitos and fruit flies. This has led to tremendous orders for the plants from garden centres all over the world.

The carnivorous plants grow in a terrarium with a lamp that attracts the insects. The combination of the Venus flytrap Dionaea muscipula, Sarracenia and Cobra lily has been found to be most effective. Watch an interview with the person behind this new trend: https://youtu.be/Nv12fZuEz5M.
