My fly trap always has those tiny fruit flies around it. All the traps that It came with all fell off, but I got 5 new sprouts popping up. Now they dont even get to open. The little pod at the end turns black before it even has a chance to grow a trap, and A few of them are being chewed on. First question--Is it the fruit flies that are chewing up my plant? And what can I do about it? My second question is---When one gets chewed up or turns black, shoud I cut it where it turns black? Or just cut the whole stalk off at the soil? It seems like they are just sitting there, not about to do anything. Please help me... My plant wants to grow.... It is frequently popping up new sprouts that just dont get a chance to open.
