    stunted growth??

    my vft seems to have stopped, the unformed traps it has (4-5) are all colored up but they having finished forming, it hasnt re-opened any of its traps that have insects in them, and otherwise hasnt done ANYTHING in the past 3 weeks. the leaves are still nice a firm, nice coloration. i inspected the pot and found no visible unwanted critters, regardless, i soaked it in distilled water for 5 minutes and then after flushed with more distilled for about 2 minutes of steady stream ontop to wash everything down. These measures were taken a little over a week ago, so now im just stumped (as is my vft). help?

    Sounds like it's just developing underground - growing new roots, developing a new growth point etc.
