    I got some new VFT's and I repotted them with the others in a bigger pot. But everything time I do this they start to turn black just out of the blue. It sucks because I got them and they had huge traps but they all die back. What could the reason be and will they get better as time goes by?

    Obviously I can't see what is happening or know for sure what the plant is going through, but my best guess is that you bought plants that were neglected / weakened to some degree / in shock, and added more stress by repotting them. Not that repotting was a bad thing, but stress upon stress can push a plant over the edge. The last thing I would do as change its conditions further. Just keep watering and allow the plant to overcome shock. That could take a week or several weeks, depending. If you see new growth, it'll be fine. Remove anything (with scissors) is black / dead.
