I bought one of those Venus Fly Trap/Pitcher Plant growing kits from Lowe’s a few weeks ago and I’m finally seeing some traps starting to grow. Problem is, the fly traps are completely bleach white. I think I might have over watered them, but I’m not sure. Does anyone have any care suggestions, or are these traps a lost cause?

I’ve had a lot of weird things happen with fly traps but I’ve never had a plant turn this color before.

Some of the roots are brownish, but the rhizome is still mostly white, so I think it should recover with a little less watering and some more sunlight.
