Brought it inside for the past 3 weeks to cool off a bit and it seems to be doing better. It has also lost a lot of its color from what seems to be lower light intensity. It appears this plant hasn't been all that interested in putting out lots of traps like my other plants. Should be interesting to see what it does in fall.

If it's anything like my Low Giant it should start clumping here pretty quick. Mine hasn't really done much up until the last couple weeks. Now I'm starting to see the little mouths coming out.

I'm sure it'll look like that Wally before long.

Seems like this LG is more of a stretcher, even when approaching dormancy. Not sure why this may be as it has had plenty of light throughout the year.

Hasn't put out that much growth, but can't complain about those big traps.

The cup was a bit small but I made it work. I didn't expect it to divide the way it did.

11 divisions for Low Giant this year! I had ran out of moss in the middle of repotting last year and had to cram it into that small cup. I'm sure it will appreciate the upgrade into the larger space.

Very nice! This one, like the Wally pot, is going to look pretty sweet by the end of summer as well!!

Today LG survived a savage squirrel attack. For some reason they keep trying to dig up LG but leave the other plants alone. Kind of a shame cause it was starting to take off, now it will be set back. I got all the plants re-situated in the pot after snapping a quick picture.

LG is starting to recover from the squirrel-pocalypse, as usual it is not a big fan of the summer heat.

LG is starting to put out growth now that the weather is cooling off.

Yeah, LG doesn't seem to keep up with my other VFT's in terms of size, color, and vigor. It seems much more picky about temperature than my others. It hates the heat and grows slowly in the cold. When it's in its ideal range (usually in fall) it starts to do great and puts out big colorful traps.
