Place a pot of Venus flytraps (Dionaea muscipula) on the table and your guests won’t be the only ones enjoying dinner. When the plant’s trigger hairs inside are touched, its elegant eyelashes turn into teeth that snap shut—even emitting a slight electrical current as they close.

To grow: Venus flytraps can grow outside in frost-free climates, or as houseplants in bright light.
