    Ok, what about the dead traps/leaves that are there from the picture, should I cut those? I was so excited when I saw the new growth, it seems to have grown half an inch in a day! It also wasn't taking much water until the last couple of days, it has been sucking it up.

    If you want. Only cut off parts that have no green. It doesn't really matter as, like said before, there is no magical faerie that runs around clipping leaves in the wild (at least none that I am aware of). It's more aesthetics.

    do what xvart says
    only remove the parts that arent green.
    it may look weird for awhile, but when the new leaves come in and it becomes healthy again, you will see why.

    Willie,
    IMO you are doing a great disservice to your plant by not following the dormancy advice..
    yes, we would all like to have instant gratification, to see our plants growing all the time,
    even in the winter...but what we would like and what is best for the plants isnt always the same thing..

    Yes..VFTs are boring in the winter..I dont see mine at all for 4 months every winter.
    but its necessary for them to live.

    you can keep going the way you are..your plant will be dead within a year.
    or you can follow the advice of those who advocate winter dormancy, and your plant can live for decades..

    I didnt make the rules..
    I just follow them if I want my plants to live.

    Scot
