    im not sure if it is dying or it is being fried by the sun
    the leaves look reddish but the traps are normal

    I have VFT's on which the older traps are getting a little black around the edges. It's been really hot here lately and I think the hot sun burned them.

    The leaves? It could be-
    1. Root rot.
    2. Intense sunlight/heat.
    3. Not enough water.
    Considering that it's probably option 2, try to give it a little more shade and/or a cooler spot.

    It is? Woah, sorry! I completely didn't notice! Well, that's embarrassing.

    If they burn, won't more traps just grow that are hardier to the hot climate?
