The Flytrap was repotted just before shipment, so it should be fine in that pot all season. You could transplant it into a larger or different pot perhaps next year after its next dormancy. It went through a complete dormancy here in New Mexico, so it is really ready to grow this year. It was a good time to buy it.
The flies in the plant's traps are courtesy the 100's of dairies in the region in which I live. All the Venus Flytraps (and about 2 dozen swallows that nest here every year) gorge themselves on some of the billions of flies in this area. So they are all very well fed from mid-Spring through late Fall. If a Flytrap is digesting an insect, I don't take it out before shipping. My Flytraps are usually in fairly robust good health so the insects are beneficial to them even when they are transplanted, a time that would ordinarily introduce some stress. But with healthy plants, that stress is minimal and they recover, make their roots comfortable in the new medium and grow well again within just 2-3 weeks.
