    Clean the whole plant first and then repot it. East-facing windowsill will be good at the moment, once you see active growing of new traps (which means it's fully recovered and adapted) you can move it outside. Don't feed it, the only trap looks pretty sad to me, I don't think you want to make such a stressed plant invest more energy on capturing and digesting insects, it should save energy for recovering!

    Now now, let's think about this. If these plants don't benefit from trapping and digesting prey, why have they been doing it for millenia? Having said that, on the last update there's not a trap on the plant so there's nothing to do but wait.

    That's why they do photosynthesis as well, and traps usually dont function well when they are really stressed.

    Photosynthesis is their main source of synthesising nutrients. It's what plants do. Unless of course it's one of the vegetable vampires like Dodders and Boomrape.

    ( Nice try at a save )

    Photosynthesis is like having a simple meal like burgers, fast energy source and low cost; eating bugs is like having a big french style dinner, a lot good things but cost more as well. When you are sick, all you need is some fast and efficient way to produce energy.

    Why are you even arguing? The vft does not have a functional trap, so the whole conversation is completely irrelevant.
    The profile pic that you see above is my actual photo. I am a hyper-intelligent snake that has learned to use the internet and I will eventually rule you all.

    Just kidding..... Or am I?
