please help me find a picture of a Venus Fly Trap's chromosomes, also, does it have any genetic conditions, if so, what are they? thank you.

Hi Carson,

I'm pretty sure the link below is exactly the page you're looking for.  It discusses the very structure of the plant, and has molecular diagrams, and chemical equations.  It aught to at least give you a jump start.  Hope this helps.

I can answer questions about native North American Plants, with emphasis on the Southern US. I have studied native plants and their uses for over 30 years. I can identify from photos (sometimes just descriptions) trees, mushrooms, weeds, and most vascular flora. I actually use the things I gather, and I have some great recipes for wild foods. I frequently design landscapes using native plants. I discovered a new weed introduction in Iberville Parish, La.
