    Hi,

    After I repotted my VFT, it has put out one unopened trap which was black. The open traps it actually put out are also much smaller than the ones already on the plant. Is there a prob, u think?

    Well....just give the plant distilled water, and outdoor sun(Slowly adjust) and it will get better. Use superthrive to invigorate growth.

    The vft may be in shock after transplanting. Depends how long ago it was transplanted. I would just make sure it has plenty of light and go lightly on the water for awhile. Usaully after transplanting they go in shock and to much water while in shock causes them to rot. That is what I have found out.

    Hope That Helps,
