We've had this little plant for about 2 months now and it trucks along. It is relatively low maintenance. We just have to add water to it every now and then. It needs to sit in about 1" of water and stay virtually swampy, but that's it. He sits in the window sill and catches unlucky flies that happen his way. The plant is constantly dying on one head and producing another one. (That seems like a healthy plant to me). I have 8,6 and 4 year old boys and they love to watch him catch things. Every now and then we'll kill a fly with a fly swatter and hand feed the plant. :)

I do not have a green thumb. Thankfully I'm great at feeding things, animals, children etc. This plant arrived with minimal bud damage. However once "fed", she sprung back to life. If you're squeemish around insects and worms, this is not for you. If you enjoy nature at its best but live in suburbia, this offers a mini escape into the jungle :)

I bought this with the expectation of receiving exactly what is shown in the picture. Obviously, that doesn't happen (like most tragic marketing schemes). The plant arrived with 6 TINY traps of which 3 were in dormancy (fully black and dried out - but hey I live in VA so it's cold here). So you can imagine I was somewhat disappointed at first. Then I stuck with it and kept raising it for 3 weeks. New traps grew and the plant seems to be doing fairly well. The traps are also looking bigger.

I would recommend this purchase, but buyers should not expect a PERFECT plant to arrive.

First, the plant came two weeks late, then I found this tiny box in the mail that had two dead little fly traps in it. Then I call customer support and some Saudi Arabian guy with bad English tries to tell me its normal if they die and just to wait, so I do, and three weeks go and the plant is still dead. So I tell them I want a refund, then they told me they don't give refunds but said I could get another one. So an even more dead plant comes, and diets spills out all over the carpet. And to top it all off, the plant is tiny compared to what the picture shows it to be, So don't waste your time and money with 9GreenBox

Now on my second plant, it is now dying, just as the first one did. I received it in a small box with dirt spilled out in the box and the plant is very small with some dead stems.

Shame on me for buying this plant again.

Dig up a weed from your garden and you would have the same result.

I grow plants as a hobby and know that these require a bit more care than a typical Ivy, Philodendron or Dracaena. I have had VFT's from several different sources. Most are still alive. This one is not. I followed the directions including lighting and use of distilled water, but it died rather quickly. It could be that it arrived rather tattered looking to begin with. Half the plant was black, and the poor thing never recovered. I had one sent to horticulture buddy of mine at the same time, who actually lives in it's native climate. Unfortunately her's was not recoverable either.

Plant was smaller than expected. It was alive and well, no sign of imminent death. Although, the package was clear. I expected it to have some words or design on it since it is expected to be a gift. Fairly easy to take care. I have ordered 3 more to go alone with this one in hopes of adding to its size.
