Nice!
Kinda sad because IMO the growing season went by so fast... :(
Aren't the traps supposed to be redder/deeper in color come dormancy?

For me, this is season is the best looking for the VFTs. My plants all look terrible during dormancy because I think I give them very little care during that period of time. I just try to bring them inside when the weather forecast calls for freezing night temps and I periodically check them to see if they need water.

We just had our first night that it dropped into the 40's, but just barely. I think I'm about to see mine start to get tired, get ready for a long sleep.

Here in Phoenix we have finally been in the 70's at night and high 90's during the day so I am already happy lol... :lol: Very nice plants francisfaustino! What would you say your favorite is? I know it can be hard to choose lol. I have a polish dracula that is really cool. I never really get tons of color out of it but that might just be because of the intense summers that are here so I can never give them quite the recommended direct sunlight, but a shade cloth has really helped me out a a lot!

Yes, it's very hard to choose but some of my favorites are Jaws, Big Mouth, Flaming Lips, Bimbo, and UK Sawtooth II. I just got the Flaming Lips, Bimbo and UK Sawtooth II recently so mine are still small but I can already tell that they are very nice looking cultivars. It looks to me like the Flaming Lips is an improved Jaws; similarly shaped leaves and teeth and yet the Flaming Lips colors up way more readily than Jaws. Flaming Lips is definitely my favorite out of all the Flytrap Store cultivars.

I also have a flaming lips and bimbo, I got the bimbo back in February which was a starter size and so far it has been a really nice cultivator! I cant wait to see what it does once it matures, I will attach a picture. What I really like about the Bimbo is that in a pretty short time it has already produced some pretty big traps and seems to put up traps pretty fast. The flaming lips I also got as a starter plant which I almost fried lol... but luckily I was able to bring back to health and it is really growing now. I have noticed with the flaming lips so far that it really likes to put out new growth.
