Hi,
Earlier this year I got a vft and it was doing great for a while. But today when I checked, most of it’s traps were closed. I understand that poking a vft does more harm to the plant than to me, and I never touch it. so I am panicking so much. Will it die because my first Venus fly trap died because my friend poked it, thus all of the traps closed, turn black and died! So I am just pancaking so much. Please help.

Is it outside? If it rains, I’ve seen the raindrops cause flytraps to close... you can tell us more about where you keep it.

I keep it on my balcony where it gets direct sunlight. When I rains, I bring it in. I guessing that the inspects are poking it ba use once they touch and. Once the traps close they quickly fly away and my plant is left with a closed trap with no food in it

Is it possible that your VFT is eating springtime insects that weren't out a month ago?
