    Hello
    I personally wouls stay away from feeding vfts catterpillars since they eat plants and could damage it Plus they are large and I dont think the plant has enough digestive juices to disolve the catterpillar therefore it may rot. (I could be wrong on the last one it's just a theory of mine)
    Oh and Ladybugs will kill the trap every time. Dont stress though the plant will grow new traps and everything will be forgotten.
    There is a thread here suggesting what to and not to feed vfts if you need some advice and some help figuring out where its next meal will come from.
    Oh and Marsgirl don't stress it happens all of the time the trap should open in a day or so then you can just lightly mist the trap from the side and the dirt will wash out.

    Reasons:


    1: Ladybirds/ladybugs and caterpillers are poisonus to cps

    2: The meal might have been too big. Do not feed the traps anything that is more that 1/2 the size of the trap.
