A picture would help very much. I would assume it would be able to catch flies once it’s big enough, but I would recommend a D filiformis floridana or a D tracyi to catch flies, they don’t require a dormancy and have super long sticky leaves. Just today my D. filiformis Florida Red caught a mosquito.

I’ll PM you once I have the seeds, probably in about a week. Very rarely do people do trades in person on the forum, they usually live awhile apart and don’t want to drive all the way to their house. And like you said they have no idea who the other person is.
