So I have two families, it's been like a month since I got them.

I grow both inside and out. But most of the time there outside.

And I know that we are suppose to let them stay outside. Because thats how they thrive.

But in my situation the cats around here keeps messing with my traps

Already lost two beautiful traps.

So that why I keep them out in the day while I'm at work and bring in at night so the night crawler won't get to them

But most of all, their still healthy from what I see.

There sprouting traps like crazy.

There lots questions that I have since I am a newbie πŸ˜‚

They usually deform when they are not receiving enough light

Hmm probably from last week. There was zero sun that week and pretty sure that caused it to grow that way

Hopefully the grow light can fix that.

This is weird, this one hasn't even bloom yet and its turning black already.

And the picture that I posted of the deform one. It still hasn't bloom either

What does this mean?

Exactly it hasn't even bloom yet.

The only thing I can think of is the recent grow light changes.

I switched to the white/red/blue light and maybe soon after that one start turn black.

I switched back to the red/blue light that I originally had, cause it seem like I was getting better results vs the white/red/Blue spectrum light.

Congrats! you've got a flower stalk (i'm pretty sure at least)if you give it enough light and feed it well you may get some seeds, otherwise, you should cut it since it takes up a lot of energy. if you choose to cut it, wait a bit longer so that you can make flower stalk cuttings. cut the stalk into 2~4 inch segments and stick it into the dirt and give it lots of humidity. (btw, you don't have to use the same post for all of your questions. you could make a new thread but that's up to you)

Nice, but I cut it off due to all the rumors about it sucking energy out of whole plant.

But I heard that only if the vft is not healthy.

OH well it's off πŸ˜‚

Is it true that if you cut that, your traps will produce bigger traps?

And thanks will do.
