I just got my Venus Fly Trap about a week ago and the information I got said they will start acting normal after about a week from being repotted. I’m not sure if they look ok or not. A little moth flew in there this morning and it didn’t do anything. Is there anything I can do to help them?C4D663ED-EAB7-4A2E-B8A9-9F3256237C5B.jpg

Suppliers instructions range from very poor to excellent so you might want to look here: https://www.carnivorousplants.org/grow/guides/Dionaea Basically, flytraps need lots of pure water, bright light and acidic and low-nitrogen soil (generally a peat moss mix.) Your photo looks o.k. to me though the plant looks like it could use more light. They tend to like full sun or the equivalent in artificial lighting. 'Hope this helps.

Yes, but you will want to be gradual so the plant can adapt to the brighter light. Plants moved quickly from dim to bright light often suffer burning of the their leaves.
