    Just the leaf will die off, not the whole plant. And there are cultivars that have giant traps too. Your VFT probably wont get giant traps until next year after it goes dormany. And the reason they lay down is because it's late in the year. I've also heard that plants that are reproduced through tissue culture don't get as big as normal plants but I don't think it's true. The ones you get at Lowes ARE reproduced through tissue culture.

    here's a good site that explains a lot of the things that VFT's and other CPs do. (like when they can't eat anymore and get "wavy" like that)

    Mine did the exact same thing about a week ago (got it from Lowe's as well), out of the blue. It sprung back by morning though.

    Usually whenever this happens, from my observation, they usually do that when the humidity is too low, its too hot, or they're overwatered in overly humid areas. The latter was the case for mine, as I already keep it in a very humid terrarium, but I also had a lot of water in the bottom tray. Apparently this kills any chance for the roots to get some oxygen, and causes the plant to wilt and weaken.
    Some random words.
