    Aaaaaah!

    Every plant that has ever existed grows leaves while old leaves die. Dionaea is no different. Your Dionaea is getting ready for dormancy anyway, so expect more.

    Looks normal to me.

    I would worry if the all the leaves/traps started turing black, but by the looks of it, the plant looks fine.

    yeah....its normal. So many times for me..the traps die especially when the plants u get are new and trying to get accustomed to the environment. However, the leaf blades or petioles are still green and photosynthesising.

    Copcar is what my buds used to call my car. I'm not a cop, I run a bakery.
