    I'll advise against using fungicide since most VFT are rather sensitive to chemicals contained in them.
    I agree with plantakiss. You should move your VFT outdoors where natural sunlight is plentiful.
    Growing VFT indoors and in a terrarium under artificial lighting will tend to weaken the VFT in the long run.

    My Vft's had a short dormancy this year. Though I hardly think that is to blame. I'm rethinking the clay pot theory, because of water evaporation is faster through clay. Gonna go with the plastic.
    They did fine in previous years, same conditions. Actually, traps were a bit more red last year,with larger plants/traps.They seem very small and undersized this year aside from the blackening of leaves. I moved a small one. The bulb seems perfect. Crispy white.
    I will let you know how they are doing after I get them moved outside. Good luck Amateur Expert.Wish I knew what to tell you.


















    I will let you guys know how they are coming along after I get them adapted to life outside the bowl.

    Since I moved my VFT's outside, my eldest plant has put out two new leaves. The traps are the biggest of the year yet!One measuring just shy of one inch. Can't wait to see how they big they get by the end of the growing season. When I took them out of the fish bowl,there was seemingly stagnet water at the bottom. I wonder if that was a problem also. They are doing 100% better. They should be seasoned enough to put in direct sunlight. That should turn traps from pale green to a rosey pink. Later

    One of mine did that once... just stopped growing, about 5-6 leaves died, and then it started growing again like nothing had happened.
    I got really worried and nervous, but when it resumed growing I just figured maybe they do that sometimes...

    Only that mine ded back and never came up again, not even as a zombie. I think in my case it was the result of the bulb rotting.

    Something not mentioned is the possibility of an infestation of unfriendly bugs. Consider it.
