if we transmit a gene from venus flytrap to any other normal plant, will that normal plant turn out to be a carnivorous one?

Scientists have sequenced the genome of the heterophyllous pitcher plant Cephalotus follicularis, in which we succeeded in regulating the developmental switch between carnivorous and non-carnivorous leaves.They have found that the insectivorous nature of these plants is due to the combined expression of a large number of genes. Accordingly their organs have also been modified.Therefore the transmission of a particular gene wil nog turn the plant into an insectivorous plant.Hope it helps.
