I got these guys from home Depot and the garden center assistant said they were just delivered, I could not believe my eyes and ears! They were in a box! They have been removed from the death cubes as soon as I got home, they are in a Rubbermaid container of RO water, they are really happy! I'm surprised! I'm keeping them indoors until it officially warms up outside, because we are still getting cold fronts unfortunately, BUT! I have very happy fly traps that I am acclimating to it's new home. The vfts in the green pot are named Seymour! The vfts in the brown pot are named Audry! Also I will include pictures! The plants will soon be going into the grow room just an fyi Image... Here you go I introduce the happy vfts from home Depot:

Thanks! I chose the healthiest of them all and made sure they had no yellowing, flowers and none of that BS so I even tested a trap by feeding it and Seymour snapped closed very quick! They love the little Rollie Pollies I feed them and trust me it was a small one! Sadly Audrey didn't close on that bug! So idk, they are very happy too

Here they are today! I found a utric, in the sphagnum moss which I was very surprised, extremely excited.... But I trimmed the non-functional traps off and I put the two vfts in one wide pot, that is a little bit of a size upgrade Image I also put the old stems and traps that are buried in some extra sphagnum moss that I had, then I had 1 division from the younger vft, which that division was a very small vft, the plant was about the size of a penny or a Nicole, they are pretty happy! They are all doing well, I give all my plants water from my RO system, they are thriving!ImageImageImageImageImage

Wait...The third picture is an Utricularia? Those have been growing in some of my pots and I've been ripping them out :shock: !

So similar situation I bought these from Lowes for ridiculous low clearance of 50 cents and 1$ for a group of bare root muscipala, at the beginning of winter they were dying. But I turned 1 around the other seems completely dead. New to this I thought the grass like plant was an offshoot of the original plant. Are these Urticularia?

I am pretty sure that is some sort of grass that grows in the sphagnum moss. I am not a pro at knowing utricularia, but I am 95% sure that is grass. In both Josh and Josua's pots.

Some high quality(to Home Depot's standard) flytraps there Joshuamarshall792!! And JoshDoe, as long as the flytraps are alive, I'd be willing to pay 50 cents for any quality they are in! :D

Hmm good idea! I need to get myself some of these kinds of birthday presents.

Your traps look great! Good luck with them this year.
