    Metal Mistress, I am moving this question to the Flytrap area, it's about half way down on the main menu.

    General best practice is to cut with a very sharp implement, the dead traps away, this prevents the opportunity for fungus to take hold there. Snip at the leaf junction to the trap.

    When you need to cut a leaf, just cut down close to, but not endangering the plants other good tissue, at the bottom of the leaf.

    Welcome to our forums, we are glad to have you! If you need any other Flytrap husbandry info, just ask, we have a ton of knowledgeable people waiting to help!
