Venus Flytrap is a premium uncommon plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes and a member of the Solar class. She costs 3 to play and has 2/2. She does not have any traits, and her ability heals the plant hero for the equal amount of damage she does. Her closest zombie counterpart is Nurse Gargantuar.

While this plant has below average stats for a plant that costs 3 sun, Venus Flytrap can be a big threat when used correctly. For starters, Venus Flytrap is a great plant in a healing deck along with Pepper M.D. and Heartichoke, as Venus Flytrap's ability starts a chain reaction with the two aforementioned plants. And since you can play her on an empty lane, she will be able to heal a good bit of health before going down.
If you don't think healing for 2 every turn will be enough, there are several ways to increase the healing output. Bonus attacks are a good way, whether it be from bonus attack cards or the Double Strike trait from Coffee Grounds, as she will attack multiple times (for Coffee Grounds, if she does not get destroyed). Venus Flytraplanet also functions similarly to bonus attacks, as it will essentially enable Venus Flytrap to heal twice; although it is more expensive and inferior at clearing zombies than Coffee Grounds, Venus Flytraplanet is usable by any Solar hero. Increasing her strength is also helpful too, since Venus Flytrap always heals the amount of damage she does on a target. For example, destroying an unboosted Zombie when Venus Flytrap has 5 strength heals you for 5 health. Chompzilla would be the best hero to use these strategies, as she has both stat-boosting cards and bonus attack cards.
However, since the amount healed is equal to the damage inflicted, Armored zombies will decrease the amount healed, while shielded zombies and Super-Blocks will outright prevent her from healing.
Try to remove this plant as soon as possible, because as long as she does damage, she will keep healing your opponent. Using cards that can destroy her such as Rolling Stone, Bungee Plumber, and Locust Swarm, or cards that decrease her strength such as Landscaper and Nibble is advised. Using zombies with the Armored trait or are shielded can mitigate or nullify Venus Flytrap's ability, the best example being Knight of the Living Dead (although he is really expensive). If she gets too powerful for you to handle, your opponent may be essentially immortal due to excessive health regeneration, so destroying her early is a priority.
