"Complete monograph of Dionaea muscipula, the world famous “Venus’s Flytrap”. Described by Charles Darwin as “the most amazing plant in the world”, this unmistakable insect-eating plant produces leaves that bear jaw-like lobes that dramatically snap shut when triggered. Native to only a small part of North and South Carolina, Dionaea is the most iconic plant of the United States and all of the Americas, yet it often remains misunderstood.
This long-awaited and visually beautiful book presents a uniquely detailed treatment of all aspects of the botanical history, ecology, evolutionary history, distribution and cultivation of this miraculous plant.
Also included in Dionaea: The Venus’s Flytrap are detailed descriptions and images of over 100 distinct horticultural cultivars from across the world (see contents tab). These include formally registered (officially recognised) cultivars, and others that have not yet been registered but are popular and well known among horticulturists in many countries. Many of the featured cultivars have never before been documented or depicted, and are introduced here for the very first time.”

OKAY SERIOUS TALK GUYS!
This clown has been seen over the past few weeks around Mansfield, Chesterfield and Doncaster, I haven’t seen a post about it on here and I really want people to know about it.
Okay so first of all besides it being really frickin creepy to begin with (designed to look like pennywise the clown) it has been roaming the streets at night time, it was started out by a student film director who was doing it for fun, but it has sparked a few people to take it farther.
Some of the clowns have been tapping on windows, trying to get children out of the house (Reportedly) also it is believed that some of them have knives and are marked as dangerous.
Please please please if you live in these areas or know someone who does, especially of they have kids, could you signal boost this? I just really want people to be safe!!
I heard friends say that he’s been sighted in Nottingham and Lincoln as well. Good thing I live on the 6th floor. Hard to tap my window.
There’s not just one, and they’re in sheffield too, a girl from my year got a picture of one on the road that my school is on. They will follow you home, muggings have been reported, although it is not believed that they go into buildings or actually attack anyone with their knives.
Apparently there is one in Lancashire and burnley too! Pls be careful!
They walk inside people’s houses if the doors aren’t locked. They also aren’t near my town, but everyone’s talking about them.
there was one at my school a couple of weeks ago and we got told that if you see one to report where they are to the police straight away
WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON IN ENGLAND
There’s also quite a lot walking around in Norwich and Cambridge. I’d watch out cause some of them are deemed as dangerous.
Seriously wtf England
So I went to Snopes figuring that I’d find how fake this is.
It’s not fake.
It’s not fucking fake. This is terrifying.
Stay safe, my Brit friends.
THIS ISN’T FAKE?
I WAS SITTING HERE GOING, “I’M A SURE THIS ISN’T TRUE BUT IT IS INTERESTING TO SEE HOW THESE STORIES SPREAD AND HOW INCLINED PEOPLE ARE TO BELIEVE THIS TYPE OF THING.”
YOU CAN’T SIT WITH US
