Do Venus Fly Traps need flies to stay alive?

    Venus fly traps don’t necessarily need flies, but they do need some type of insect as a source of nitrogen in order to thrive. VFT also photosynthesize, fixing atmospheric carbon dioxide into glucose, as most plants do, however unlike other plants, this carnivorous plant has evolved to supplement its nitrogen uptake with insects.
