    I agree! It's normal for aging traps to turn black and die off. It's a good idea to leave the trap on until the entire thing is black, that way the plant gets to reclaim as much orgranic material and nutrients as possible from the dying trap.

    Fine. Do not expect me to answer any further questions from you. If you are too lazy to do your own reading then I am too lazy to care if your plants die.

    Hello Geffcardo

    It is fine for you to ask questions. Everybody here has probably read articles and books on CPs but you still have questions. And getting different opinions is good. Then you can draw your own conclusions on what way you'd like to grow YOUR plants.

    If reading articles and books answered every question everybody has, there would be no need for this forum. So ask away! Those who wish to answer can and those who don't want to don't have to.

    Just like Est said, all traps will eventually blacken and die. Its totally natural. New traps will grow from the center. But its a slow process so have patience. Sometimes you'll have a plant with no mature traps and sometimes there will be nothing but new traps...or a mix of both. Just allow your plant to do what it does naturally. Only if you see the center dying out should you be concerned.
