In a science book;
Certain species‌ of insectivorous plants‌ can actively‌‌ hold their prey‌ until digestion‌ is completed. The Venus flytrap and common bladderwort are examples‌ of such plants‌.
I am not sure what "common" here maybe, I do not whether it is شائع or عادي?
Any help appreciated.

It means the most common variety of that plant. عادي might work.

Yes, it is part of the botanical name which is Utricularia vulgaris. I can't vouch for the accuracy of this source,* but it seems that it could be called الفقاع الشائع in Arabic.
