    i dont have a camera...

    i thought my marker might have been causing it to die, but i think it just went dormant for the winter... i didn't know it did that...

    TBGuy,
    im a little worried about your plant..
    not because of the marker/eyes, but because it has decieded to "go dormant" within the last week..
    So it was fine when you drew the eyes on December 29?
    it shouldnt "go dormant" that fast..it should be much more gradual,
    and it should happen in October!
    while the plant is outside..

    I assume your plant is being grown indoors right now?
    thats very bad for January..
    where is it growing? inside or outside?
    and what are its growing conditions?
    (temperature, light, water, etc..)
    and how long have you had it?
    if it IS outside, and you have cool winter temps right now, then its probably fine..otherwise there is reason to be concerned for its health..and you need to do something to change its environment right away..

    Agread. Crash dormancey is an icky thing. I have this one plant I nick named green that did that to me last year even though I had just gotten it and it was in artificial lighting. The thing has look horrid ever since and this fall it crashed out AGAIN! This time it dropped all it's leaves and my mom thought it was an empty pot and tossed it in the rubbish bin before I got it in the fridge so I had to go and find the little sucker. Sometimes it is just the plant. See, I have another vft I got at the same time, on an identical scedual as this ones and it never has crashed. Hopefully yours will be okay though, sometimes you can have rapid die off from the traps geting tripped or whattever and have it be okay.
