I found out today, through the chat room, that the reason my ventrata was doing so bad is because it doesn't like much direct light. Right now, I have a half dozen or so brownish, deformed leaves on it, from drying out. Some are just kind of yellow. I've since moved the plant to the porch, where it only gets direct sun for 2ish(?) hours in the morning, instead of the 11 out back.
Since these plants don't go dormant, it won't do what VFTs do where they just shoot up pretty, healthy leaves to replace dying ones. Should I ignore the brown leaves, or trim them? They don't look good... Maybe trim the bad ones after healthy ones come out and don't dry up?
I've only had this plant a few months, and it's still living in its lidless death cube from Lowe's.
(I also just found out the same about my butterwort, not liking sun and such.)
