Here is my VFT two days after repot. The two lower traps are dying but with 7-8 new ones growing I'm not too worried
We bought a typical VFT the other day and it had this white plastic ring covering the soil, and when we looked underneath we found this little guy:
It looks to my...
Me and my fiancee are first time growers- just repotted our first VFT
Here's after the repot:
After many years of not having any Venus Flytraps, I am attempting them again. I recently setup two plants, a B-52 and a DC XL. The DC XL came in bad shape and has been struggling (see the story and photos in this link...
I've seen these threads every few years and always enjoyed them, so I'll start one. Ignore the bad photos and the garden hose, it is connected to my A/C drain pipe and is supplying my water.
Already alot of new growth on both the Sarrs.

I decided to finally start a photo thread, now that I know how to post photos. I don't know how many updates this will be getting, but as of right now, enjoy.
Here's what I won at the NASC auction.

It's always nice when your hobbies can support each other. Pictured below are one of my new honey bees (just started got them on 4/9, my first ones), and some VFT 'Red Dragon' that I recently ordered and I'm acclimating them in and area that isn't full sun all day. It also happens to be under a...

Good afternoon, terraforums. I have a "dente" vft and when I repotted it this spring I found out that I had more than ten! I couldn't count them all, but all except one were seedling sized. In your experience, how often does dente divide? Thanks in advance.
Yesterday I received a Venus Flytrap in the mail. It arrived a bit beat up. Besides proper light, and sitting in a water filled tray, is there anything I can do to help this plant? Should I attempt to feed it's only open trap? I haven't had a VFT in many years (and when I did, I didn't know...
First off, what the heck is Thank You membership you may ask? Find out HERE.
I want to give a heart felt thanks to everyone donating their items to the NASC auctions! We all know the NASC does some wonderful work out there for these great plants, and I think we all love helping them raise...
I have a handmade, by me, Venus Fly Trap Necklace up for auction.
A REAL, dried VFT is locked inside a glass 1" diameter pendant for you to enjoy forever (unless, of course, your drop it on a hard surface and break it)!
The VFT pendant is hung on an 18" silver plated chain and the glass...
I trimmed a stem off of these recently replanted vfts and around the base of the severed stem weird pinkish growth has occurred. Can anyone tell me what this is? the severed stem has also become really fat. It is that big brown blob where the pinkish growth is surrounding
I was fertilizing and mulching my young apple trees yesterday. I found inch worms trying to eat the leaves. My VFT had a few new traps that just opened. . . I think the other inch worms understand now.
I totally felt like Neegan off TWD. :banana2:
These are both very desirable VFT clones:

Dionaea 'B52' photos
The Red Dragon is totally red if grown under bright lights, and the B52 is one of the largest VFT cultivars.
Winner pays $3 for shipping. US only. I cannot supply phytosanitary or nursery certificates...
I took my 15 VFT out of the refrigerator today and removed them from the moist peat moss they were stored in over the winter. Potted them in pure peat moss. They are in a sunny window in my unheated garage since we are expecting a cold snap late this week down to the mid 20's. Might bring in my...
