It looks good, but it would be happier with more light. I did the same thing, grew mine on a windowsill, and I got those really long, weak, floppy leaves. As soon as I moved it outside it started growing much shorter, thicker, greener, sturdier leaves. I've attached pictures of before and after the move outside, so you can see what I mean. You can tell the difference in brightness just from the pictures. The dying leaf on the left of the bottom picture is one of the old indoor leaves, you can see the difference in length.

You know, it's actually really funny, I'm guessing you mean the traps on the right? That's actually a red piranha, which was a lot more red when I first got it (see pic). Something about my conditions, all my plants have very little color, even the ones that are supposed to be solid red.

Red flytraps can usually only be found at online stores. Here's a list: ... -they.html
