5 of 5 Venus Flytraps January 13, 2020
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Missouri, United States  
I teach 5th grade in Ferguson, MO. I thought acquiring a Venus flytrap as our class pet would be an awesome wrap up for our life science unit! Students loved the plant so much! Wanted to name it but they couldn’t reach a consensus ...sooooo they decided to cast secret ballots for either a girl (Venus) or boy (Vincent). After a gender reveal with balloons....it’s a boy! Vincent Valentine!

Plant appears to be hardy and thriving! Thank you for our Vincent!

Reviewer: Mr Prytania from Chicago, IL United States  
Nice looking but a bit of a runt.  Hope after a year or two it fills out a bit.
