    No, I do not remeber you [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] . But welcome to the forums again. I would just reduce it from the sun for a while (4 hours of shaded sun) and let it recover. It should be alright may slow down the growth but it will recover with some tender loving care. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Same thing happened with me today!!! I usually leave my 2 regular flytraps and 1 Dente out for full sun and they do fine until today. I didn't know it was suppose to be 102 lol! My two other flytraps are fine, no burns or anything. But my Dente doesn't handle the heat and strong rays really good. I guess it was too much Texas sun for the poor vft. But I will get him back into good shape.

    Hi Fernan003,
    Just some thoughts.

    When you put your plant in full sun, did you do it gradually over a couple weeks or all at once? If it was all at once then the plant didn't have time to toughen up and that is why the leaves burned. If the center of the plant still produces new growth then your plant will recover.

    Do you use the tray method for watering? Keeping the plant in a tray with " to " will help keep the plant cool (and humid) with evaporation from the tray.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Fernan003, did you have a cover on the VFT that got burnt in the sun? If you did, this was probably the cause. If not than it was probably what BCK said, about letting it slowly toughen up to handle full sun. Also make sure to use Distilled, rain, or R/O water only.

    Hi!
    It depends on where you live in the US. Flytraps grow in North Carolina, so anywhere north of there and your VFT shouldn't get burnt.
    To build up resistance, put your plant out for an hour for a couple of days, then 3 hours, then 4 etc..

    Just to go along with what Alvin said. Full sun greatly varies with your location. Texas would be brutal to a tropical VFT, when with me in Alaska in the summer my VFT well full sun for 18 to 20 hours a day and does great. (I was aksholy amazed how much it grew this summer with all the light).
