    Some growth is better than no growth.
    The profile pic that you see above is my actual photo. I am a hyper-intelligent snake that has learned to use the internet and I will eventually rule you all.

    Just kidding..... Or am I?

    I just took another update photo. It looks like one of the traps has closed on something. This would be the first active trap. Look in the top left pot and the top plant in the pot. The one trap that is angled to about 11:55 looks like it is clamped on something. False alarm? I hope not, it will jump start the plants if its feeding already.

    I just took my plants out of their pots to put in the refrigerator and see I need to update this thread with photo's I've had but never posted:

    June 6, 2016 Flower buds starting:





    Sept 16, 2016 Plants fully grown. Smallest plants in lower right pot didn't all make it. Only one.:



    Today, Dec 13, 2016. Took the plants out of their pots. They've been in my garage in very dim light since the first hard frost. I think the coldest we've had since then is low to mid 20's overnight. The outdoor ground is not frozen yet. Later this week we are predicted to get down to the single digits or so. These are the plants after breaking off the perfectly good leaves and traps and roots. Washed in cold tap water and storing this year in moist long fiber peat moss in a sealed plastic bag in the back of the refrigerator.

    I have peat moss soaking overnight and plan on repotting all of my VFT tomorrow. I have not looked at them since Dec 13, 2016.
