What kind of a root system does a Venus Fly trap have?
The Venus Fly Trap has fibrous roots with a small root system. The roots of a Venus Fly Trp can go up to 10 inches deep in the ground, and go downward more than outword. They are also very sensitive to the type of soil they are placed in. Soils such as Miracle Grow can actually burn the roots of the Venus Fly Trap, slowly killing the plant.
