    Trying to be fair and objective; After complaining about the free shipping description, I did get free shipping. Is this a “Red Venus Fly Trap “Akai Ryu” VFT”? Time will tell. This plant looks like the picture, after a month of no care. No traps, no new growth. It is in serious need of TLC and hopefully will recover with proper care. I bought it for it being a different variety, but have gotten far better plants at Walmart for a third of the price.
