    Nothing looks good outside right now of course (and may be losing one of the clones, unfortunately), but there is this nice double trap inside

    Still working on getting outdoor stuff looking semi-decent (curses Botrytis and unpredictable CO weather!!!), but there are some newcomers that I am hopeful about... first off though, these guys are almost ready to go outside again

    Well, I'm ticked; 'Dentate Traps' decided to rot, and my typicals are only just barely coming back around this year. No clue what the cause is either.
    On the other hand, this guy is producing nice traps:

    I have unfortunately lost both my 'Bohemian Garnet' and 'Scarlet Bristle', so 'Akai Ryu' are my only red flytraps once again. The smaller made a double trap though

    Do the double traps each work separately, or do they both close when one is triggered?

    It's not a full double trap (they're connected by the outside wall) so they both close. Pretty sure even full double traps being on the same leaf would be triggered by the same potential.

    Did you winter them outside? maybe it was too cold or too rainy where you live. I lost VFT this way.

    It can drop to -30 F here in winter, and I do not have an in-ground bog, so there's no way they could survive outside. No, some bad soil and an accidental dry-out period is probably what did it.
