Dear Ted,

Probably yes, if it is a common plant.

> What is it called?

This is difficult to tell from your description. How did your
colleague call it (if necessary in Vietnamese)? Does your colleague
have a specimen? How exactly does the plant look like (leaf surface,
margin, stem, inflorescence, flower structure)? Is he sure the plant
captured insects with fast closing spring-trap like leaves (and not
on a sticky surface)? Was the plant aquatic (capturing aquatic prey)
or terrestrial (capturing terrestrial or flying prey)?

It is most probably *not* a VFT (if it was native in Vietnam).

Kind regards
