Is it normal for fltytraps to stall growth a bit after you've cut off the flower stem? I noticed my flytraps are a little slugglish after trimming off their flower stems.

Depending on health. After a few weeks my plants started to come back. A few leaves where affected, were red before and after, the one remaining included. They are on theyr own pot from 28 november last year, artificial lights (three T8 36w, 6500k, 32500 l) and half of a hour of light in a east position. In my area, the living blocks are aranged like in Pripyat, Chernobyl.
