Mid Summer update on "The Tub" plants
The tub now gets about 9-10 hrs. of direct sun this time of year. No shading of any kind. They are still doing well. Those who say Flytraps can't tolerate the heat of full sun, think again. This is Southern California. Latitude 33.4. I cut all the flower stalks and harvested what seed there was. The full sun plants seem to develop more of an orangey color than the ones in the greenhouse.

The Flytraps in the tub planting look great, Brad! And the pool in the background looks very inviting, especially today under the hot New Mexican sun. Can we all come over and play in your pool? :D

Thanks for the update. The plants look very healthy and happy, and very colorful! :D

Those are absolutely beautiful (as are all of your plants).
How long did it take them to get used to full sun like that? and how did you do it, was it gradual or did you just grow them from seed in full sun?
in any case thanks a lot for the update, those are absolute day brighteners :D
