    Welcome to the forum and nice color on your flytrap! What are the white sticks in the pot with it? Also where are you from?

    I live in Michigan. It was actually pretty nicely colored when we got it- was in much better shape than a lot of the rescues I've seen posted.

    The white sticks are just confectioners sticks, like for lollipops. We put those in to kind of separate a few traps that were growing together

    Welcome to the forum.

    Here's something you might want to know. When your vft flowers and it will, you can cut it off and put it in some media and grow a whole new plant.
    The profile pic that you see above is my actual photo. I am a hyper-intelligent snake that has learned to use the internet and I will eventually rule you all.

    Just kidding..... Or am I?

    You just cut off the flower? How mature should the flower be first?

    When rescue plants have good color, it's because it's new stock. Always good to get them when they're fresh before they suffer in the insufficient lighting of stores.

    Its hard to say cause it was a pretty nice nursery- can't be sure how quality its care was but seems like it was better than a big chain store. They handed out leaflets with the "correct" instructions

    Yes, it's that simple. I have only tried this for the first time this spring, but I cut the stalks when they were about an inch and a half long. I used segments that were about 1/2" long and they're still green.
