I got a double VFT from this site about four months ago, and it's doing pretty well, it seems. I've been going well so far without too much more advice than the initial stuff, but I have a couple more questions.
First, it seems that my plant is fond of daddy long legs. I don't know how the heck it manages to catch the body in the trap instead of the legs, but it's managed two so far.
The first one is killing the trap. Could that be because the legs are sticking out of the trap, or is it because the daddy long legs is venomous? (They just can't bite humans, their fangs aren't big enough.)
Also, should I snip off the trap as soon as I find that it caught one, or should I wait for it to turn black?
Second, I read recently that long leaves mean that the plant is getting insufficient sunlight. The leaves are pretty solid, though, and they're not drooping at all. Most of the traps have a light pink color on the inside, too. Should it be getting more light?
Third, the fact that it's a double plant is starting to bother me. The long leaves are making it look like they're outgrowing the original container, and I really want to separate them. Would now be a good time? I think the plants are big enough to put into dormancy, and I want them to get over the shock of being repotted before that... so I want to separate them now. Good idea or bad idea?
Thanks in advance
