    Ok place your plant on a bright window. Leave the plants pot in tray that's filled with DISTILLED WATER. When all the water is gone fill the tray up again. A small pot is fine. Wait until the plant starts growing until you feed it and only feed it live insects.(about 1/4 the size of the trap)

    Hi
    The food you are giving to them must be alive, otherwise the trap will reopen thinking it's caught something inedible like a leaf. Most people feed once or twice a month. An alive fly will trigger the little hairs inside the traps and it should close very quickly, but the traps can stop working if they are old. Try a new trap.
    The traps should turn more red if you leave them in full sun.
