So my teacher mentioned in biology today that if carnivorous plants like the Venus fly trap, were to grow in nutrient/nitrogen rich soil. It would still grow and live, but it wouldn't produce any traps. Because it would be getting the nutrients/nitrogen it needs in the nutrient and nitrogen rich soil. Therefore no need to produce traps and get nitrogen or nutrients from the insects that it would catch. So, is this true, false, or just don't know? Opinions please? Also it was funny cause right when i saw we were going to study carnivorous plants i knew that she would say some rumor or something false. She said "Now would we find any of these plants around here in this region? No they grow in tropical places like in Africa" (I live in Georgia) I was laughing on the inside and said "Actually the Venus Fly Trap only lives and is native to North Carolina" and she said "Oh really? Then it must be some other type of it" But haha i didn't say anything else. Knowing that there are only one type growing in the wild that aren't hybrids.
