A recent observation I have made with my traps is, if I just let a rotting trap die off naturally it seems that the whole plant does a lot better, the ends of a cut off leaf tend to grow mold, and a naturally dying trap seems so just blend in with the peat moss eventually. This works well for me. Since I have been visiting this forum all of my CP's are in tip top excellent shape. Thanks to all the great tips I got from all you wonderful people, thanks to everyone
