Thread: Co2 levels make traps close?

    I hooked CO2 up to my VFT and all of the traps closed. I was not sure if i set them off when i was moving the plant around but 3 days later they were not opened so i removed the CO2 and they started to open so i hooked the CO2 back up without touching any of the traps and a day later they were all closed again.

    They don't like a lot of carbon dioxide becase they get nutrients from the soil form the water and from the insects that go into there traps. To muchs makes them close. But I still don't know why. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    well, the force of the air blowing in could close the traps

    As trapper mentioned, high CO2 levels make the traps close. I don't know why but, I've noticed this phenomenon also. Perhaps you may want to lower the level of CO2 injection.

    Why would a VFT react to something like that anyway? Do the traps look like they snapped shut, or slowly moved into that position?
