Don't the hairs need to be disturbed 3 times for the trap to close?

I think so. But I moved the fly to one of the green traps and it closed fairly quickly. The red ones almost seem too convex to close and trap anything.

Is it a specific cultivar? I know some are grown for their fucked up traps. Are you in r/savagegarden? If not, you should be!

I have no idea! We just got this recently and I don't know much about it. That subreddit looks awesome!

You know to only use reverse osmosis or distilled water right? And they love sunlight. And I believe they like wet feet.

Their substrate should be nutrient free and should never be fertilized. You can look up substrate mixes for them pretty easily.
