    Hello [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    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. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    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. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    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.
