    I wondered if, like sundews, you can take a cutting of a trap and grow a new one from it? if so what do you cut

    Yes - pull a healthy trap downwards, making sure you take some of white with it. You will need to up-root your VFT to do this though. Then lay it on some peat moss and lightly cover. After about 6 weeks something should happen. The one I did about 6 weeks ago has grown a tiny root but that's all so far.
