    This is really weird because only one out of 14 is going limp. And its leaf is about 1 inch long with a baby trap. It is soft and can't hold its shap, its like it does not have a back bone anymore. What is causing this? I gets moderate-good light. I put it where the sun shines during the morning and move it around to catch light during the day. Is there something else that I might be missing? My room does get kind of humid at night, is it because it could be too hot?

    I also stop leaving it at my office overnight for a little over a week now.

    Thanks

    If it's one trap I wouldn't worry. Sometimes they can grow a bit strange. I would check that there's no aphids or anything sucking the sap though.

    If it's still green leave it, if it turns black snip it off.

    Low humidity, new growth is more sensitive than mature toughned up growth. Put a dome or lid on it
