    Hey everyone! I just woke up my VFT's a little early as I put them into dormancy about 1-2 weeks early. Well I'll be using the refridgerator from now on! They all came out perfect! Just a couple of dead leaves that I trimmed off. A few of them have been growing over the winter in there! A couple of new leaves are coming or have came out and are resting on the soil. I am so happy they came out great! And I thought I would lose them all! Well anyone looking at this wondering what to do about dormancy take it from me! IT WORKS IN THE FRIDGE!!! Jst treat with a fungicide and your set! I may try it next year with them all in thier pots. I don't think it would make any difference. But I was bored and it is very close to the end of dormancy so I am now watching to see them get growing! Later and Thanks to everyone who helped me through dormancy! Nep.G.

    That's great N.G., I'm glad to hear they did great too.

    Mine are au natural, on the porch. Very mild weather the past week, infact the porch hit 70F yesterday. I think I saw one of the flytraps open its eyes-then it saw its shadow and went back to sleep (OH No, thats Phil the groundhog who does that LOL). Anyhow, have fun watching yours get started.

    Thanks Everyone! I do already see some of the older traps starting to loosen up and relax. They were as tight as a clenched fist but now more like an open hand inviting bugs to touch it.

    thank god the hibernation season is coming to an end! i moved my flytraps inside about 3 weeks ago and they are now growing like mad.

    i think i may have put them through a bit of shock when i brought them in however...

    the first few new sprouts grew misshaped traps and leaves...very weird

    but they are all looking very healthy now.

    ill probably move them back outside in 2 or 3 months when it is warmer.
