Nice pictures, what conditions do you keep the plants in? inside or outside, under lights? the conditions at this time of year vary a lot so an idea of what yours are experiencing would help.

Thank you I think its one of the mlst beaitiful vft that I have grown from seed right now. :)

Im doing it indoors with 1k watts(as per seller) warm+red grow light panel, sitting on a tray of water around an inch deep and gets refilled after 2 days once it dries up. I mostly feed him/her spiders that I caught outside every 2 weeks.

Im living in the tropics and most of them the growth slowed down around june to july when it was super hot here then started shoot growth around late august. Last repot was around mid July. And Im using sphagnum moss and perlite.

That looks to be perhaps the newest leaf and trap to develop fully, but it's not quite done yet. I'm thinking that, in a day or so, the hairs will straighten up and look like a normal typical.
If you watch the traps those two leaves that are coming up, they'll probably do the same.

It looks alot better now. Oh here is another thing im a but worried there are all divisions from 1 or 2 plants. They stop growing then boosted its growth. Tried to repot and divide them sometimes the newly repot plant will die or get the same clump when they grow.

A question Image why are they clumping so much? Even after repot?

Flytraps cluster together when they divide, it's just what they do. You can separate them all you desire, but they'll just divide more and cluster up again.
Some people just say forget it and repit the entire cluster into a wider, deeper pot and let them do their thing.

Thanks I just wish they grow a bit larger to be easily repotted.
