I got my first exposure to killer plants when I watched the Little Shop of Horror… of course I got the wrong impression that a venus flytrap can eat up a man. But it has always been fasinating looking at these plants as they trapped and digest the insects, maybe they are martians disguised as plants…

This fascinating kit contains ten varieties of seeds of the world’s most lethal plants including Venus’s-flytrap, Pitcher Plant, Sundew Plant, Cobra Plant and others, all deadly to the insects they trap inside. Comes with a growing dome, swamp rugs, planting mixture and more.
