my venus fly trap is making leaves

by Nelson82 » Wed Dec 06, 2017 6:38 pm

Hi! I'm new to the forum and have been taking care of a venus fly trap since the summer. Recently a lot of the traps have turned black, and the plant is now making broad leaves without a trap. The leaves are much wider than the ones it made during summer. I will attach a photo. Since I live in Norway, could this maybe be an adaptation to the low light conditions we have here in winter?

Two things are going on, most likely.

1. Its entering its final stages of dormancy.

2. It needs more light.

Definitely a light issue. Find a way to get it more light.

Thanks for the answers! I will place it closer to a window for now. I hope it will survive until spring arrives.

Yes, definitely lacking light. In addition to getting it on a windowsill, move it outside on days when it's above freezing.
