Greetings from Moscow, Russia — a place, where you keep your flytraps on a windowsill all year round and they get dormant in time!

It’s been about a year since I’ve got my first flytrap, and most of that time I’ve been lurking there anonymously… and in the dark, considering timezone difference 🙃

So, usually I’m not that talkative, but for starters, here is a photo of some flytraps in DIY self-watering pots made from actual vodka glasses 😉

These one-off shots are often found on store shelves waiting for poor souls in dire need of some poison --- a-and I made better use of them!

Ah, of course they do have their lights --- on a fancy industrial-grade aluminium profile stand, just to spotlight some extra local harshness 🤨

Eh, pardon me? You must have posted to the wrong topic as I don't sell anything...
