    Won't the roots eventually curl downwards and the whole plant fall out onto the floor?

    Yeah, roots grow with the pull of gravity and shoots grow against it. Since venus flytraps don't really vine or need support to grow this sort of pot would be useless in my opinion.

    i kind of think its a good idea to grow venus fly traps up side down becouse whene you put it outside the plant can colect rain water and sun light

    the topsy turvey thing looks like a good idea becouse the plan can colect rain and sun

    This topic is as dead as your VFT will be if you try it.

The only obvious sign I see is red traps, which I have never had.

    That's the blood rushing to their heads.

    All this "Topsy Turvy", grow things upside stuff is a novelty that should die faster than it is. It's just a money making scheme IMHO.
