Something I've wondered for a while............
Should VFT traps be immediately removed when they start to yellow or turn black after capturing prey?
Since the trap is being infected with a bad bacteria, would it be prudent to remove the infected trap to prevent contamination to the entire plant (if that's even possible)??
OR, does the VFT still receive nutrients from the slowly dying trap? So, leave it on for while yet. (?)
I know that in the wild, traps naturally stay connected but what should growers do? Does it even matter?
Your thoughts and experience?
