...I like this 'weekly photo' thread. In your last pic some of your other seedlings are visible. Are all of them doing this well for you or did you just happen to start documenting your biggest one (at the time)? Also, it doesn't appear that feeding all the traps at once causes the plant to go into shock, just the opposite in fact! Great growing.
PS - You can always PM me if you're willing to sell any of these down the line.

Here is link to where I learned how to feed VFT seedlings....I do feed most or all the open traps that can take some food....you'll see in the first post there is link to original post where Maiden (I don't know who this is, just the screen name) posted about his ability to grow seedlings fast. People basically said he was lying so he got some seed and grew them posting the results....My seedlings don't grow as fast but feeding seems to help them...

...very interesting thread. I'm basically doing the same thing. I started late though, got some seeds off eBay and seeded them mid November. I took pics today, that would make them about 2 months old. Not as big as Maiden's in his old thread (or yours), but they're doing ok. Appear to be lots of different varieties in the 3 pots tagged f,g,h., and a little crowded.
...in h, at about the 6:30 position there's a red seedling with a weird tentacle and in f at about the 11:30 position there is another one (can't see it that well when you zoom in). Strange, they almost look like miniature flower stalks. Anyways, Happy Growing.

...are you sure that's a good idea? This one is growing very nicely for you, transplanting now would set it back, no? That's been my experience with repotting Flytraps. From looking at a lot of your posts, I know you are an experienced grower and you've been at this for a while. Just my 2 cents, that's all. Cheers.
