Hi, 1 of my flytrap leaves are so curled, may i know what are the possible reason? Iack of light? Her neighbour seems straight =/

And the bigger pot(brown), initially the leaves were short n broad, now it became tall n skinny, good thing is the traps are not getting smaller. Is it ok and normal?

Any advise will be appreciated

Thanks in advance!

In the first picture, I'm concerned a out the yellow color of some of the leaves. That could be due to lack of light. I can't tell about the second one whether it is putting out thinner leaves because of lack of light or if that are its early leaves coming out of dormancy. The third picture is definitely planted too deep. The white part of the rhizome should be the only thing beneath the soil. That could be what is curling the leaves. If that isn't it then you likely have a pest. I would raise it up a little and see what the new leaves look like. You can check it for pests at the same time.
