Since the last time I showed pics of my fly traps, they have grown more traps. Harold and Hanna had developed more red on the inside/outside of some traps. Some r also dying which I expected.

Do these guys look healthy? I'm really sure they r but I would like a second opinion.

I'm also going to try getting them ready for dormancy next month, I'm hoping things go smooth and they survive for next year

They look like they could use more sunlight to me.

Ok, I'll do just that! As of now they r getting around 5-6 hours of sunlight.

I didn't notice a tag, so assuming a 'typical'.

I agree with @Panman, if getting enough light your petioles should be much shorter, and your traps would have more red color.

For reference, this is one of my typical plants, I cannot even begin to count how many plants might actually be in there. This is a 3.5 in. square pot.
