Hey everyone! I’m brand new to the site and to VFTs. I just purchased my first one last week from FlyTrapStore and it is awesome!!!

I’m looking forward to learning more about these cool plants, connecting with fellow growers like you, and gaining your insight and help for when I inevitably need it 😆

I just got the “Classic” starter plant potted in long fiber sphagnum.

I just realized I can add pictures on here so I figured I’d give y’all an update on how it started versus how it’s going!

Hopefully these work!

My only concern is the pinkish/red coloring that’s appearing on the stems of some of the new growth. It’s new but it doesn’t seem to be affecting the plant in anyway, so possibly just sunburn?

Now I’m starting to get a little concerned with the way it’s looking.
