    Having lots of flytraps would be a cool attraction to the restaurant.. You could grow maybe 25 pots of them.. 15 outside ten inside and every week switch ten so they all get adequate light... You could get that many for about a hundred bucks. Even if they don't make much of an impact on insects the children would love that! What type of restaurant is it?

    Flytraps are small, popular and pocket sized. Resteraunts are busy enough, how are you going to police them?

    Sorry, I just like playing devil's advocate today!

    just get the tape. why waste money? kids will be messing with them, the tape will work so much better. like I said youll have to give dormancy, and buy water, since you usually cant give tap.

    I think agressive, you mean which will snap at flies. it would need to grow really fast to do that and no plant does that. the flies come to them. the plants aren't agressive. this is what you really need http://www.doversaddlery.com/categor...cd2=1275515482

    Flytraps would definitely get tired of all the false triggers. I"ve also heard they don't like to eat beef very much either. I'm sure the same would go for pasta, fish, chicken, and anything else that may be served there....

    Here's what I always tell people...

    On a good day, a carnivorous plant will catch maybe 2 or 3 insects. The average female insect, on the other hand, lays about 50 bazillion eggs at one time. So, even the most ravenous carnivorous plant won't really make a dent in the insect population!

    I agree. I don't feel good even I think of this scene....

    Not good for a restaurant.

    Nobody will certainly want to eat near sundews covered in dead insects.

    If you know other unique plants that can walk, can talk, can sing, or can eat people, please tell me and I definitely want to get one.
