It’s been a long year. Along with a purchase at the end of August. I bought a plant at Lowe’s in aransas pass. 90 minutes there and back, Honestly this was worth it. I was looking for a Lowe’s anywhere near me in a small town on the water. I made a plan to go to Lowe’s that was 45 minutes away. So I took off and thought instead of looking for a yard sprayer, because I knew I had one in my cabinet. I knew if I turned back around it would be a waste of time and gas, I was already 10 minutes away. So then I decided to go look and see if they had any fly traps.

They did. I picked the one I thought looked appealing up and decided to start a rescue.

I have to say after 4 months it looks wonderful.Image

The first picture is today at 10 PM

The last is when I brought it home.

Lol I agree. Speaking of which I need to put that thing up. It’s getting cold here.

The plant loves 18 hours of light. Sansi makes good lights hands down.
