    Recently my vft has been sending up leaves with tiny trap things. Do they always come out that way at first? Or is there a problem? Also does it matter that they are coming out straight up?

    Sounds exactly like your VFF needing much more light. Try moving outdoors to a shaded area for a week, then put it in some morning sun, then full sun. Large leaves usually means the plant is trying to capture more light, small traps means the plant can't make enough food to make larger ones, and skinny growth could mean the plant is trying to reach up to find a better source of light.
