I certainly would if it were my plant. Keep it in gentler conditions until you see new growth starting and you know it's settled in. This close to dormancy, you might not see a lot of new growth, but putting it outside in full sun after being uprooted would be hard on the plant.

Matt, I just put it on a sunny table in the guest bedroom.

Nice order Michael 3 Jaws score! It wont be long before that Wacky grows another crown.

Bigred That's weird about yours if you don't mind would you give more info about it's conditions. I know you know this but if I had to bet it would be that your plant should recover even with no traps unless something went very wrong. Keep us updated.

Wow!
Those mystery boxes look amazing!

Matt, when you start doing more TC, reckon you could make a TC version of the mystery box for us UK'ers?

I'll think about that, but my initial thought is that it wouldn't be worth the effort to sell them.

Fantastic Photos. Is that the Flytrap Store Coir Growing Medium you've got your Dionaea planted in?

Matt, that is a good thought. I can imagine sorting out Phyto certificates could be a hassle.

Thanks! No, it's sand/peat and a little perlite.

I have just ordered my trap in the fall. Will the plant be in its dormancy state when it arrives?

Plants are well past their prime for the growing season and well on their way into dormancy now. Dormancy doesn't happen overnight, so I'd say right now is the transitional time when they still have some larger summer leaves, but all of the new growth is low to the ground like they will produce during dormancy. They'll hold onto the summer leaves for perhaps another few weeks here in Ashland, Oregon and then those will die back leaving only the low growing rosetted leaves.
