Did not survive the winter Zone 7A April 5, 2019
Reviewer: Patricia Cimino from Toms River, NJ  
I purchased Dionaea muscipula "Dente Flytrap" in September 2018. I bought a portable greenhouse and kept them in there through the coldest days of winter but they still died. Bought special soil to repot and used distilled water. Very sad.   *** RESPONSE BY SARRACENIA NORTHWEST ***  I'm sorry to hear about your flytrap!  Many things can happen during winter dormancy, so it's hard to assess what went wrong.  I noticed that you purchased the ebook.  Make sure to read the section "When Winter Care Goes Wrong."  You also mentioned that you purchased special soil to repot your plant.  I checked my records and I didn't see any purchases of soil from you, just the flytrap and ebook.  Without knowing what you meant by special soil and the source of your soil, it's difficult to assess if that is where the problem may have been.  We're always here to help you out.  If you need further assistance, visit the Carnivorous Plant Help page.

Dente Flytraps December 31, 2018
Reviewer: David D. from Arlington, TX United States  
The plants arrived in great condition. After relocating and getting adjusted, they have now started adding some new sprouts. They are indoors (cooler area) due to weather shifts to extreme cold in Texas, yeah it happens. They are in great shape and will be wild growing soon.
