What improves the growth of Venus flytraps?
 
That's an interesting question. You can easily conduct the experiment to find out. 1 plant with food, and another with sunlight/soil nutrients.

Here's some background information for you to consider, from [url]http://www.botany.org/bsa/misc/carn.html:[/url]

"Just like other plants, Venus' Flytraps gather nutrients from gases in the air and nutrients in the soil. However, they live in poor soil and are healthier if they get nutrients from insects. Carnivorous plants live all over the world but Venus' Flytraps live only in select boggy areas in North and South Carolina. Because of people's fascination with these plants, they collected many of them and they became endangered. Venus' Flytraps today are grown in greenhouses."

just a warning--I visited a botanical garden that sells venus flytraps, and they're pretty expensive. Consider your resources and if you want to spend that much money for an experiment.
