    Hi from New Zealand

    Hi everyone. I'm originally from Canada but am now living in New Zealand. Last year, I purchased a venus fly trap from a garden centre in Hamilton and the plant has done really well.

    I posted some pictures on reddit today and the community there loved the plant. One person suggested that I come over here and post the pictures. So here I am!

    My Venus Fly Trap's name is Bitey. I hope that you enjoy him.

    Bitey chilling out:

    That's the biggest VFT I've seen. I love Bitey. I guess a more appropriate Bitey face would be :-A

    Welcome to TerraForums.

    You're plants look splendid.

    BTW: it is summer in New Zealand in January

    Welcome! One of my best friends in college was from New Zealand. He always raved about how beautiful it was there and all the barefoot hiking they would do. I hope to visit someday!

    Kia Ora arcticfox and Bitey. NZ is a beautiful country. I spent 9 months traveling there -as part of an 18 month trip to the NZ and Aust- and hiked around Auckland, Stewart Island and a great deal in between. Cheers!
