    It probably won't be a mojor problem.
    If the plant came out without major trauma (snapping, movement, etc) to the roots, then the plant will just suffer from minor stress. Even if the roots were moved around a little bit, it still wouldn't present a major problem.

    Next time, try to use trimmers or scissors to cut off the dead leafs.

    Those leaves are fakers. They look all black and rotten so you yank on them and suddenly they have the strength of a steel cable and yank the plant out. Now i give it a gentle tug...if nothing...get out my small scissors and cut it.

    Been there and done that....brings back memories....

    It should be extremely safe to let it outside all year in your growing zone.They can even withstand a slight frost. I use the tray method to gorw my plants.Some morning their will be ice in my grow trays. This doen't seem to bother my plants
    I live in Sonoma County. Have been growing for 7 years. flytraps all outside year round.
    Might have to pour some water out when it rains too heavily.The one thing that you don't want is for the crown of the plant to be submerged under water for a long period of time.

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.

    Oh, hey you live in Oxnard!!! A fellow Californian!

    About your question:
    I would definitely leave them outside during the growing season. But during late fall and winter (dormancy)... hmm this is a tricky one..
    You live near the coast, so that means that your winters are warmer than they are inland (where I live). What are your average monthly temps for the dormancy months?

    howd u know i live in oxnard?
    i dont know the temps but there are times when the rains intense
    this is my first year growin them and i dont want them completely flooded by rain
    the water i use is pure water, if rain hits the soil, would different water damage the plant?
    mayb i should put an umbrella over my flytraps lol
