When I was a kid I mailed ordered some Venus fly traps. They came in a terrarium and with diligent care survived for about a month. Man how things have changed! These things are hardy suckers. When they arrived a couple of the flytrap heads turned black, I cut them off and now a few months later the plant has almost doubled its size. More flytrap, more pitchers, the works. And all I do is pure distilled water on it once a day! I can't believe how weather tolerant these things are! 100% as advertised and 100% will buy again.
