    You should generally avoid getting flytrap in winter since they are dormant.But, since the shipping probably messed up their dormancy and you won't know when it went dormant. therefore, you might bring it out of dormancy to early.It is much better to get flytraps in the growing season.
    Most flytrap can survive sub-freezing temperatures and even below 20 degrees for brief periods of time.The only thing should prevent is dry, freezing wind and prolonged sub-freeezing temperatures.
    Good Luck,
    Adrian
    And I'll tell you, thats teriffic! And I'm going to do it again! Maybe I'll even do it three or four times! Why? Because I like it!

    I really don't see that winter time is bad as long as you know how to handle it. It may be winter right now, but it is also the very beginning of the new growing season. If I bought one now I would put it at a window sill or under artificial lighting until it becomes warm enough to place outside.
