Maybe multiple of them?
I used to have a pot of them about 20 years ago but can't remember what happened to them.
Flytraps are vulnerable to many small pests like aphids, spider mites, thrips, leaf hoppers and scale. They do a number on flys, spiders, centipedes and moths though. I would say African sundews would be a better option for a grow tent as they grow quick from seed, multiply rapidly and can be grown year round in a warm climate without needing a winter dormancy like vft's. They also clean up the small pests like fungus gnats fairly well.
