I don't know much about VFT so I'm unsure if this is just a regular one or a hybrid, but it seems to be growing really well.
One month ago:
This morning:
Pictures aren't great, but it really did grow fast!
I know it's hard to tell from the picture (I'll try and get a better one in the afternoon), but is my VFT looking alright?
I only ask because the pinkish color of the traps seems to be fading. I'm not sure if this is normal or if I'm doing something wrong.
Anyways. thanks for looking.

I have to ask though, is dividing a good/bad thing or something that just happens?
Also managed to snap a couple of better photos.

I have two from Lowe's, re-potted one and it had seven divisions so divisions are good, one of the division is very low to the ground and the others are upright and it looks like you have the same in your pot, it should give you some more plants from that one but wait until next year to do it, I agree with Matt it looks happy and well cared for, the reddish blush they get seems to be about how much light they get, flytraps love the sun when they look like yours, see what happens if you give it more.

Yes, it has definitely divided several times over. You can divide them next spring.

Thanks guys!
I did notice some red specks and webbing in and around some of the traps today, so I'm going to look for some threads about spider mites. I'm glad the plant looks healthy, so I don't want that to change.
Thanks for letting me know about dividing as well.
