    i got a trap at a local Zehrs today for 5 bucks.
    i took it home and opened it up and let it sit in my room, at the time the traps (about 6) were standing straight up.
    when i was in my room a few hours later, i noticed they had all fallen to the side like the trap part was too heavy, is this normal or are they lacking something?

    Is the soil moist? Make sure u use distilled water. Where is it located(by the window)? What is the temp? Welcome to the forums.

    that was quick...the soil is still moist (i havn't watered it yet)...a card came with it saying "put your flytrap in a room with lots of light, but not in direct sunlight"....so i put it on my dest near the window...my rooms pretty warm, around 27-28 degrees C...anything else?

    Introduce it to sunlight slowly... too much at once will burn it. Indirect light for now is probably fine. Put it in a saucer with about a half inch of distilled or rain water and give it some time to acclimate to its new surroundings. When the water in the saucer is almost gone refill it to a half inch again. Your plant should start to produce new traps soon.
    There's a tunnel at the end of the light...
