Hello everyone, Today's one of those very rare sunny days(first one pretty much all month!) and even thought it's been only several months since I bought my first Venus flytrap, many of my plants have changed a lot, some grew taller & changed colors, while some didn't get sunburned until weeks later :( Here they are:

My first cluster of VFT's:
Before: (The traps burned to a crisp after several days :( )
Image
And After:
Image
They're still not looking too good, because by the time they decide to have a growth spurt, I was in Reno while my friend kept these at his house, giving it rain water that he gives to his plants, but I didn't realize the rain barrel was so filthy, which is ok for vegetables and flowers, but he didn't know it was so bad for VFT's, and I'm guessing thats why some are turning black :cry:

Next is my Sarracenia "cobra's nest", which changed in color drastically:
From this:
Image
To this:
Image
It has also gotten much bigger and had produced many off-shoots :)

This is my 2nd VFT before:
Image
And after
Image
Again, these aren't as good-looking as before :oops: but it has made A LOT of off-shoots, and I'm hoping they'll look much better next year.

My dente Before:

And after:
Image
It's gotten shorter! :shock: But other than that, the traps are much larger than before and I see a lot of little new traps coming up

My Red Dragon (akai ryu)
Before:
Image
After
Image

And I thought I should also show you guys my new plants:
Drosera capensis:
Image

And my sarracenia that just arrived about a week ago:
Purpurea:
Image
Judith hindle (in back) and tarnok in front
Image

And of course my baby VFT's from Steve:
Image
Image
If you notice in the first pic in the upper left corner, there's a strange pale one. Does anyone know what might've caused this?

And lastly, my 2 little capensis cuttings barely a week old:

Thanks everyone for your comments :) I know they don't look very impressive (especially the VFT's ), but I didn't expect them to: most of them are still experiencing shock :|
