These voracious plants are mainly seen in Carpenters' Landing
, although a few varieties are found elsewhere. Hovering over the ground with petals extended, they attract their prey by looking like typical peaceful flora, only to close their "trap" and capture their prey inside. With attacks that can paralyze or sleep whole parties, or slow an attacker down to a crawl, these plants can pack quite a punch and should not be underestimated.
They are stingy as well, generally providing the victorious adventurer with only a Flytrap Leaf as a reward. That said, the leaf can be valuable, not only to various merchants in Vana'diel, who will often pay more than 1,000 gil for each leaf, but also to crafters, who can use the leaves in a few select, but valuable, synths.
