today find out my second vft with their long spindly leaf stalk (I mean normal healthy vft in summer with “spindly” with long leaf stalk which posses a larger trap, just like other normal vft in summer, however I don’t have a picture and I’ll try to get a picture by my friend cam next time) almost lie to the soil on the hot spot, when check thoroughly, the soil are dry, almost to cracked. the leaf look flaccid and wilten but still green and not completely dried up with their trap seem to not respond again when poke, i think the soil are wet enough due of heavy rain at last week without checking thoroughly, Realizing of this, i watering again until the soil are very wet. After 6 hours later, their long stem is standing and their trap seem to respond again.

the weather here is quite drastic ya know this few days.Been raining heavily from morning till evening with 100%humid, and then drop till 50-60s during evening with a warm sun,that might shock the VFT i guess.

just monitor the soil and not to let the soil dehydrate.
