Hi! I got this plant as a gift some months ago. It is growing very fast, and the branches are sort of climbing. It has few, long, and thin branches, with some green leaves. The most specific (and cool) detail are these flowers as you see in the pictures. They have these tiny hairs that seems to be moving. So I am first of all wondering, what are the name of this plant? And second, is this some kind of Carnivorous plant? Really hope somebody here can help me Thank You!

Can you post a photo of the entire plant and another of the leaves?

Some kind of Ceropegia. Need to see foliage to try to determine species.

I agree. My first thought was Ceropegia sandersonii (umbrella plant) but it could be others.
Keep going!

"The flower itself serves as a biological myiophilous (fly-pollinated) pitfall-trap, that traps flies when they descend into the corolla tube. Small hairs that point downwards prevent the insect from escaping. Once trapped, the fly is thoroughly covered in pollen and only released when the flower reaches the end of its life and the hairs weaken."
