Those look like the summer leaves that flytraps grow. Winter rosettes are usually smaller, more compact (closer to the crown) with wider, shorter leaves. Effectively the opposite of the one that is growing. I tried keeping them indoors for a time, it didn't pan out well. A flytrap won't go dormant at room temperature with 16 hour photoperiods. If you can, I'd find a means to allow it dormancy though for the overall health of the plant.

Thank you just noticed that the traps die out quicker more than new leaves being made. The light im using is a combination of a warm light 3400k with some red led. If they are summer leaves rhen it should be fine for the time being right? I just need to really know when they are about to go dormant to store them in the fridge.
