    You'll have news ones growing all the time until it goes dormant for winter.

Barely into the Dixie category.I thought for sure I would have got 75% like yankee or more. Everyone I talk to outside of my 5 county area says:" Are you from Philly?" I pronounce water like wooder. I think that is only a Philly thing. Anyway I was amazed!!!!!!!
    Oh, and by the way...

    Hi, I'm Kitkat. I'm new. Ever since I was a little girl, I have wanted to own a venus fly trap, but had no luck at every nursery I went to. I was beginning to think that they didn't exist.
    One day it popped into my head... Oh yeah, the internet; I'll check there.I found this site, did some research and a week later I have my plant. His name is Seymour, and I am in love. Seymour and I have been together for 3 days. I have been reading about how to care for them over the last week.
    I cannot wait to watch him grow, and buy more plants. I have been looking at all of everyones wonderful pics and articles and I can't wait to expand my collection.

    I live in an apartment, so for now Seymour is on my desk in my office in front of my window and under florescent lights. I have plenty of distilled water, although I am nervous about the temperature.I know I have read everyone's articles about being outside till frost, however, my instructions that came with it say around 75 degrees. Also, I think some traps need to be trimmed, but I do I check? stick a paper clip in all. The ones that don't close need to be snipped off? That seems mean. Any suggestions would be great.

    When I buy my own home probably in the next 2 years, I will buy a green house and really let loose. I am very limited in my current home. I am so excited. Now, I found this forum and a whole new society to come along with it. People who care for these plants like I do. I feel like I found my home!!!!!!!!!!!!Thanks for being here.

    Hi Kitkat and welcome to our forums! Is Seymour's last name 'krelborn'? You'll just have to get another and call it Audrey. And then another... and another...
    Do you also say 'warsh' for wash?

    As Ozzy said, if it's green, leave it be. Only black / brown pasrts should be removed. The care instructions that come with the little pots are incomplete and inaccurate. VFT's DO best outside, but for now, until Winter finally goes away, I would put yours in another container, filled to ~1" of distilled water. Put it at a south or SW facing window. Do not cover the plant. Enjoy! We'll worry about the dormancy issue down the road.

    I kept clicking on it over and over again and eventually it went to 100% dixie

    Hey Kitkat... jimscotscoot (sorry.. jimscott. "jimscotscoot" is his nickname. Long story) gave good advice. What he said. And you can tell if a trap is no longer functional (though it doesn't really matter) by looking at it.. if the lips of the trap are curled slightly outwards, then it's no longer functional as a trap, but it's still green, therefore it still performs photosynthesis and produces energy for the plant, so don't cut it off until it's browned.
