My flytrap has flowered twice now. Any recommendations? Should I cut them back, or save the seeds? Thanks. -John From Staff: I wouldn't touch the plant and would leave it be. Make sure you're giving it ample water and sunlight.

Hi, I potted the sundews I bought in sphagnum moss I previously bought from you.  I recently noticed grass-like growths sprouting. They don't look like they are sundews.  Maybe something hitch-hiked along with the sundews. Attached are pictures. Any thoughts on what's growing Reed From Customer Service: It's just grass.

Good evening!



My plants arrived yesterday and I went and bought distilled water today! (With nothing added)



I’m just wanting to know if I did this right. These guys didn’t have much, if any, roots. When I took them out of the paper towel they kind of fell apart in my hand. (I only ordered one of these) So after I moistened the medium, I just set them in there and pushed it down a little bit. Will this be ok?



Thanks for your time!



From Staff: Your setup is perfect. Just place your plants in sunlight and wait for them to triple in size in the coming months!

I just received my B52 Fly Trap. I followed instructions to plant it. I have taken some photos to show it. Is this normal for for plant to droop? Also, is this the correct water level? Please see attached photos. You have the best quality and service I have seen. Joel answered all of my questions/concerns in a very timely fashion. I ordered the B52 but was sent a different variety by mistake. Joel quickly remedied the situation by sending me the B52 without me having to return the other variety. Joel is very knowledgeable and attentive. Look no further. This is the place to buy your plants. Thank you Joe P From Staff: The droop is normal, as the plant has spent a few days in transit and has freshly emerged from dormancy. It will grow robustly in the coming weeks as we enter spring. You'll want to reduce your water level to about half of what you have the plant in now.

Hello, I purchased one of the 1x Large Adult Plant: Giant Venus Flytrap "B52" Dionaea Muscipula Cultivar for my grandson in Oct. of 2021. It was dormant for a time but not completely as we live in Florida. Do I need to repot this at some point? If so, would you mind telling me what type of pot and soil I should purchase? We only water with distilled water changing to fresh water once a month so we think it is doing well so far. Thank you for your time! From Staff: Yes, I would repot the plant at some point. It looks like your specimen is sprouting multiple growth points and is doing well for you!

Hello. I purchased the sarracenia purpurea venosa last summer and have watched it grow some. I have followed directions to let it go dormant during the winter. I purchased this 6" pot to transfer the plant this spring. Is it ok to transfer to this size pot or should it stay in the original pot sent with the plant a little longer? I love this plant and I think it is so beautiful. I look forward to it getting huge! Thanks.

Ordered the 3 plant VFT Collection. Plants arrived in four days, and planted into long fiber sphagnum moss as directed.  The “Red Dragon” and B52 cultivars were robust and healthy with multiple upright and open traps.  The all green cultivar, not sure of the name, was weak with many closed traps and twisted leaves.  I sent a photo to VFT.com with a request to replace the weak plant.  In response I received an explanation as to why there was nothing wrong with the plant; my request for replacement was declined.  So, 2 out of 3.  One Star off for sending me a weak plant; second Star off for not replacing the plant. From Joel:



That is normal. It's NOT health related. The other 2 plants are more hardened off though. The top plant is actually the B52 and it is a more recent arrival but it's not unhealthy. The bottom plant is the Flexx clone.



VFTs make prostrate leaves most of the time. They go through cycles where they make erect leaves and some where they make in between erect and prostrate leaves but most of the time they go through cycles where they make prostrate leaves. It does not have anything to do with their health one way or another. The currently prostrate leaves will not bend upwards. They are prostrate because that is how they are making their leaves right now.



VFTs ordinarily make heart shaped prostrate leaves in the Springtime, tall erect leaves in the Summertime, thin short prostrate leaves in the Fall, and small heart shaped leaves with small traps on them during their Winter dormancy, if they have leaves out then. But when VFTs are propagated through tissue culture and have not experienced a Winter dormancy yet, they sometimes make the seasonal leaves out of their correct season till they have their first Winter dormancy and then make them in sync with the correct season from then on. Prostrate Spring leaves sometimes curl downward a little in transit too. But this and the leaves being prostrate does not have anything to do with their health one way or another. This is also covered in your FAQ sheet.



In case you are wondering why these type of plants grow prostrate leaves and traps, it is so they can catch more bugs. Prostrate leaves and traps catch both flying and crawling insects. Erect leaves with traps up in the air catch only flying bugs. Guess which one winds up catching more bugs?
