    Wado, if the pot is water logged, make sure it is not in a suacer with water, and let it dry out a little, till the soil is damp to the touch.

    Flytraps can take periods of being saturated, but extended saturation drives oxygen out of the soil, causes an anoxic situation and to plants roots will rot... then you won't have a plant at all! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    Hi Wado

    Also, the traps don't last forever. They will blacken and die off naturally any way. So if you see a trap die, don't panic and think its something wrong with it just because of that. You can trim off the blackened traps. The plant will produce new leaves and traps. Mine went thru a slow-growth period as well but they perked up.

    Keep hanging around and asking questions and your plant should be fine. :-)
