    The traps on my flytraps (Not my 3 year old ones) are closing really slowly. It takes about an hour to even start to close at all. What should I do?

    Possible reasons: Did you give it dormancy?, Your vft maybe rotting, so you may want to reduce the water intake, or the traps are old and ready to die. Need a little bit more info. from you.

    What is the air and soil temperature around the plant.
    A cold environment will cause the traps to close slow.

    Cheers,

    Dude, you may want to consider changing your forum color to something darker.

    The air temperature is around 72 degrees F and the soil temperature is around the same. And even the new traps that have just opened are closing really slowly. Jimscott, how do I change my forum color to a darker one?
    Thanks.

    It dosen't sound like the cold, or soil. High mineral content of the water?
    Need to know when you got them, if they've had a recent dormancy, if so how long did it last,and most important do they share any common genetic material as my wife cus' I think she moves at the same speed, watering dosen't seem to help. Serously let us know as much as you know.
    I always suspect everything is a trap....thats why I'm still alive

    Times fun when you're having flys

    I got them at a nursery in Minnetonka, Minnesota. They came in pots with little baggies on top. I use purified well water so there is no minerals in it.
