Since i bought a VFT ~1 month ago, all 3 new traps have grown really deformed & curly. The trap itself & the leafy bit along each side of the stem have bumps all over them. There is a number of aphids on the plant - can I spray it with an insecticide spray to kill them off? I'm concerned it will kill the plant by getting insecticide in the traps. What is the best way to remedy this problem?
Thank you in advance for any advice you can give me.
