The starter sized flytraps being shipped now, am i good to just place outside in full sun on day 1 or do i need to acclimate.

In my area sarracenia are pushing out blooms and sundews have started to grow, no change yet in flytraps.

I got a starter sized Alien and DC-XL from Matt a couple if weeks ago and I put them right outside. I just watched the temps and brought them in if it dropped below freezing. They're both waking up fine with the rest of my Sarrs and Traps and putting out new leaves.

Yep, I usually stick the plants right outside with no acclimation from FTS. Their plants are well hardy enough as they are.
