    Unhappy

    I know that the tired traps can still photosenthisize for my plant, but if they end up crowding too much, should I clip or trim on or two of them since they're otherwise useless?

    CN,
    I would venture to say no. This is a guess, but since they really only need to eat 2 or 3 bugs a month, "tired" traps shouldn't be a problem. I'v also read that VFT's like to be crowded...not too sure if that's true, but there you have it.

    Hi Andy,
    Just leave them as they are still of benefit to your plant.
    Best Regards

    never mess with live plant flesh, it could cause a place for illness to take hold, besides, if the plant feels it is to big then it will kill it's own leaf when ready [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
