If you took it out of the death cube it is just adapting to the lower humidity. It could also be adapting to better or worse light conditions. It would help if you would give more info about the conditions you are keeping the plant in. What are you watering it with?

Lots of indirect light is fine. If it's getting more than a couple hours of direct sun that's too much. Keep the soil moist but not wet.

Yeah its getting inderect light and its moist so its just adapting then cause it took my venus fly trap 3 weeks to adapt and its growing more traps. And where i live its really dry and it takes about 1 day for the water in the tray to evaporate lol.

Don't keep a tray with water under it. It doesn't like wet feet. It needs to be dryer than other CPs
