Hey all!

A bit about myself: recently moved into an amazing apartment that faces north-east, which prompted me to buy a bunch of plants - including a venus fly trap! I bought it just before winter (June - August), so this'll be the first time seeing it come out of dormancy :shock: it still managed to snag a few insects before going dormant though ;)

Quite excited to see it in all its VFT glory - in fact, I'm so excited that I bought an additional VFT and a pitcher plant, so I can't wait to see what happens :lol:
