Growth resumes in spring.

    Upon arrival, our fly trap was lovely and healthy. I purchased this as a gift for my husband and he IS SO HAPPY. Ever since transferring to its own self watering pot, it continues to thrive! Catches lots of little gnats and other insects on its own. Thank you!

    I ordered two, and both arrived in Minnesota in perfect condition. After a few days, I could not resist feeding a dead fly to one trap, and it closed with amazing speed! My only concern is how they will make it through the winter, but I will cross that bridge when I come to it.
