    I would say it's healthy, but I would still recommend growing it outside. How long have you had it?

    Looks rather healthy. You're growing it outside, right? Because that is the only way it will stay healthy. Looks like something took a bite out of the trap in front. The birds at my house have been ravaging my Akai Ryu flytrap...

    Hm it have been under 1 light tube for 1 and a half month or more and today i got 1 more up so very nice "daylight" (840) I think now it is with the 2 light tubers.. And just woundering since i have repotted it like 5 times in that month and still the traps keep coming.. So no never have had it outside and cant have it where I now live. And the bite have beeen there all the time its a battle scare

    No way to have have it outside? Or at least get sunlight? If you can't, it'll decline unless it gets natural sunlight and goes into dormancy. :/

    I absolutely 100% guarantee your plant will slowly but surely start doing very poorly under that kind of light. When they say "sunlight" bulbs, they're talking about the spectrum of light produced, not the intensity. Those bulbs cannot replace sunlight, and venus flytraps NEED full sunlight. They will die without it.
