Hello bought a venus fly trap from poundland and ended up with this plant... was just wondering what it is any ideas? Thank you




It is your money fly trap

Did you buy this as a growing plant Sunshines or a seed? If it was seed take the plant packet and the plant back and complain. Realistically though anything growing/living that you buy in Poundland is likely to be dodgy. I personally would not buy plants from Lidl, Aldi, or any of the supermarkets either; they sell them like they sell washing powder and do not look after them properly. A GC or nursery may be more expensive but you are likely to get a far better plant. Woolworth's was the exception to this but they haven't existed in the UK for years now.

There were a couple of similar questions earlier this year - not Poundland but somewhere similar.

Bought the plant from a seed i dont have a clue what it is just wanted to make sure it isn't poisonous or something like that

I'd just compost them. Could easily be weeds that have grown in the pot and the original venus flytrap seed never germinated
