[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I have 2 VFT's which I've kept outdoors all summer. They've grown many new traps. Throughout the summer some have turned black & I've cut them off. I've never transplanted them yet. My questions are several of the traps are turning black and they've stopped eating. Is my plant showing signs of dormancy this early? Should I start bringing it in to reduce it's sunlight intake? They get plenty of flies crawling all over them but they don't close on them. Why's that? I water them daily. I'm still getting new traps. I don't understand what's going on. I can't believe I'm this concerned about 2 plants. I don't want to lose them.
