I was going to order some VFT plants and Sundew plants and well I still am but I couldn't wait so I went down to the local lowes and bought a VFT plant they had there for 5 dollars. I put some pics. Let me know what you think. Having never owned one before Id look to here comments on if they look good and healthy. Also how long can I expect for them to start growing. Right now they are in a 2.5 inch pot.


Im very excited to have my first VFT plant

Hello gabescott and welcome to FlytrapCare!

Many congratulations on your first VFT! It's a little light starved right now and the soil (sphagnum moss) looks a bit dry, but give it some distilled water and gradually introduce it to sunlight and it should do well this summer.

Congrats on the new plant! Good luck! :D

It would also benefit that plant if you pulled it out of the cube it's living in. High humidity isn't a requirement for VFTs and it will complicate growing it.

Congrats! Make sure you give it some water. The soil looks pretty dry.
