the growth slowed down a little bit.............. but i can still see two new leaves forming from the rhizome............
but the new leaves that opened just now seen to have shorter leaves........
and just a few hours ago........when i came back from dinner i wanted to take pics but i noeiced one of the permature traps hanging from the leaf.....i touched it and it just fell off.
and they are stressed out due to overfeeding themself......(they caught 4 flys in 1 week).....
u think they are going to dormancy?

the irregular leaf shaped ( all leaves ) suggests that it could be attacked by some bugs etc.....try looking underneath for unusual markings or abnormal color.

it also doesn`t seem to be getting enough sunlite which could have caused its overall straggly look. what kinda sun is it getting ? do avoid intense a`noon sun tho. try sunning it slowly if it isn`t used to the sun.

The plant seems to suffer from light starving, provide more sun to see if it is still the same. The 3rd picture is kind of scary, is that just shadow or something on the lower part of the leaf stems? It looked root rot to me but the 1st and 2nd picture seem fine .

okay,is the leaf soft?
if the leaf is soft,i think its root rot...or rhizome rot ..
i killed a few of mine with root rot since im giving it less sun and too much water.

and yes,from what time to what time does your VFT receive sunlight?



Thanks
Harris
