I love gardening, baking bread, and time with family/friends. I have almost 3 acres but most of it woods. I love my sunny spaces. I am in SC.

So nice of you to say Kyla. Where do you keep yours? @PunkyKy

I have created a little bog where I keep them still in their pots....but I soon am moving them to a bigger container bog before winter.

It's a very poor looking one...it's off to the side....the main thing in pic you can see is the flower from it and another plant. But yes it's A very poor fly trap. You can see one trap on it hanging down. @moore.794 never seen one quite like it myself either...but I can tell from the flower and I see the trap.

@moore.794 @PunkyKy need to go check how its doing. Last time I looked, flower had opened up. It does have typical fly trap appendages.

I understood that you should remove stem so not bloom. Takes long time to recover. @PunkyKy @ofthought

Yes .....i can take up to a year for the plant to recover after blooming. @moore.794
