I just received my first VFT. I ordered it from this website and I would assume it is not very old. I read that you don't have to put the young traps through dormacy. I live in Wisconsin and I don't get much for warmth. It would reach in the lower teens in my garage and probably 50's in my basement. I don't want to take the plant out of the pot and put it in the fridge if I don't have too, but I will if you say so. Also, should i leave the pot with the trap in water constantly? or should I take it out of the water a couple hours a day. Thanks for any help.
