    Yeah, green is good. Red is great! Your plant just needs time to adjust to its new setting.

    I wasn't home at all yesterday and we had a nice steady rain that my plants probably enjoyed. Now most of my traps are turning that black color and getting crispier. So are they done for? The new shoots are still coming up and seem an inch taller within two days.

    Do not worry about blackened traps and leaves. That's natural. As long as you are getting new growth from the center, all is as it should be.

    Also...VFTs that you get from Garden Centers and Lowes, etc...many of them have had their traps poked NUMEROUS times. People just love to make the traps close. And the plants probably got tap water and all that. So they've most likely had a rough life before you ever got it.

    Give it some time and let the old growth die off. Give it good light, pure water, don't trick the traps and it should be happy as a clam....a very prickly clam. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
