    Strange one this...

    Hi

    Plant arrives through the post well packed...

    Unwrap the plant carefully... Place on the side...

    Then SNAP SNAP SNAP SNAP all within couple of minutes 4 traps auto close for no valid reason, do the traps not trigger in the dark or something missed ....

    Nice plant however just hope it does not die now

    It's a RED DRAGON

    Advise please...

    it wont DIE! ive seen vft very often trigger from too much outside stimulation/ jostling about. espesially when taking a new one from the box it was shipped in. it only takes a day or two for them to go back to normal

    I hope you will take it outside and place under something for several days.

    Traps will open in 24-36 hours.

    You can stimulate the traps by rubbing the outsides - you don't have to touch the triggers inside.
