    yellow dying leaves?

    So my venus fly trap was going so well, and there was no sign of dying leaves or any problems.



    then today i came home to witness this....





    Is it ok? It has been raining a bit, so maybe that could be the reason?

    Leaves (and traps) just die.

    It was that particular one's time to go......

    It'll be replaced by other leaves.

    Not to worry.

    Its fine..
    its just one of the oldest leaves on the plant..
    (you can tell because it is "under" all the newer leaves)
    just normal "old trap" death..perfectly normal.

    lmao! It reminds me of old times. I was like that too. I saw a dead leaf and was like.. "noooo!!". But now...I don't care. lol. The VFT's pump out number of leaves. 15 leaves or so per rosette. don't worry. Let it get adjusted...then it will do amazing...especially since u are growing it outside.

    Here is a pot of my VFTs at the end of the season, late October 2004:



    thats a perfectly healthy pot of VFTs!

    normally I cut off dead/dying leaves as they appear,
    but I probably stopped doing that about mid-September that year..
    because the season was almost over and I was going to cut off all the leaves soon anyway.

    From the obe pic it looks like an older leaf whose time is up. In the same pic I see new, healthy leaves emerging. All is good!
