Venus Flytrap native only to N. Carolina, in a meteor impact crater. Aliens from another planet?
I heard the Venus Flytrap grows native only in a small part of North Carolina in the impact crater from a meteor? I thought the story was a bit out
there but very interesting. It’s weird, the Venus Flytrap, an ominous looking carnivorous plant, does look like something from another planet.
It’s absolutely true that it only grows natively in one area of the world and it’s N. Carolina. The only thing special I could find about the area
is the soil, its very nitrogen rich. I couldn’t find anything about an old impact crater. Has anyone heard this story before? If you look at the
evidence it is possible. Plant seeds are very resilient and can last a very long time, hence the doomsday seed bank that’s getting built. Could
spores, seeds, whatever, stand up to the hard conditions of space? If the seeds were incased in ice or something it could have protected them from the
extreme hot and cold.
Possibly evidence of alien life is in plain sight, a novelty gift bought in grocery stores for fascinated little five year olds to bring into school
for show and tell. If you asked me two days ago where the Venus Flytrap came from, I would have said the Amazon, somewhere exotic. I grew up in New
England which is not to far from the Carolina’s, and your not going to find much exotic foliage; to me the Flytrap is out of this world.
