My oldest is about 5 months old (woot!) And it doesn't even look like a fly trap anymore, (no carnivorous leaves, just stubs with pointy ends.) It grew 6 flower stalks all which I clipped. That seemed to have made it angry and it hasn't grown anything new since. My baby fly traps are doing great however :).
