My plant was healthy until three days ago. I had fed it a fly and everything was cool and nice with it. But two days ago I saw that all its traps were closed

I thought that it was shocked because of the sudden cold produced by the air conditioner, so today I put it in a jar, put on the lid, and left it in sun. But four hours later I came back, and what I saw was not what I thought I'd see

Oh no! Putting any plant in a closed container in full sun will fairly quickly cook the plant. So sorry!

The good news is that the rhizome is likely fine, so the plant will grow back.
