I got my fly trap, Audrey II (thank you Litte Shop of Horrors), at the beginning of the school year back in August from this wonderful place. When I got him he had large dark green leaves and traps. I gave him a plate of distilled water and he grew like mad, but the traps were tiny and light-green and the leaves were really long.
He still growing, but not as quickly and more often than not the traps turn black while they are still little, before they've uncurled from the leaf. Or they may get a little bigger before turning black.
He's never eaten a fly as long as I've had him (though one did walk through his trap) and he lives under the lamp on my desk. I haven't put him in hibernation because I don't have a fridge I can put him in.
Oh yeah, and there's some white thin fuzz-looking stuff on a spot of his dirt. It may actually be fuzz, but I'm not sure.
Will Twoy be ok?
