    So... bugfreak, are you going through with the fridge method? Or did you decide to leave it outside for the winter?

    I have some other questions that might aid in identifying why your plant is weak...
    Since the summer:
    -...did you have only this plant, or did you have additional VFT's?? If so, do any of the the other plants show any similar signs that the weak one is displaying?
    -...was your weak plant out in full sun?
    -...have you been using distilled water?
    -...have you repotted the weak VFT?
    -Has your weak plant ever skipped dormancy before?

    Is the plant showing any signs of new growth? My VFT's are now in dormancy, but I have been noticing that there are still new leaves and traps emerging VERY SLOWLY from the rhizome. New growth obviously indicates that the plant is healthy.

    the other one is just straight up dead.

    it's been getting full sun and i haven't had it long enough to go through a dormancy. i haven't seen any real signs of new growth. just a tiny trap here and there. i use distilled water, and the plant hasn't been repotted for some time.

    i believe i got this one at a walmart store- dunno if that matters or not.

    i think i'm going to keep it in a shaded corner and hope for the best. i am looking forward to spring so i'll see if the plant will make it, and also so i can get some new ones.

    you're not gonna believe this, but i didn't even think about that, copcar! my whole household has been sick and it did not occur to me to bring in all my plants (the rest are not carnivores) with the sudden freeze tonight.

    for you peeps not in texas, i wore a t-shirt all day and was warm. now you need a coat and we will have sleet/freezing temps tonight. according to weather.com, it's currently 38 degrees.

    that could be your problem right there..
    Walmart+not repotting = likely death.

    because Walmart sells cheap crap..and while Walmart doesnt directy pot the plants it sells, it does buy the cheapest everything it can..meaning the people who supply everything to Walmart have to also be ultra cheap just to sell to Walmart..meaning you have no idea what kind of cheap junk your Walmart VFT might be planted in!

    any plant bought from Walmart should be immediately repotted!
    actually, better idea..no plant should ever be bought at Walmart..period.
    actually..NOTHING should ever be bought at Walmart..period.
    but thats another topic alltogether..

    well, what i meant when i said i hadn't repotted it in a while is that i haven't repotted it since i got it. right after i bough it, i repotted it and it did extremely well for a couple of months.

    anyone seem that southpark episode about the wall-mart?
