Hi Panman, I understand trap size and food size relationships. I feed all my plants pretty much without issue. I feed them houseflies and medium sized spiders, all live. The Bloody Nurse is different. It has relatively large traps, 1.25” to over 1.5” so oversize food isn’t it. It seems to get so distorted forming a seal that the trap just destroys itself. The plant is very vigorous and clearly gets a boost from eating. I’m just wondering if this is occurring with everybody.

Interesting, I haven’t seen that at all on mine. Bet it’s just one-off anomaly. Kinda cool in it’s own way with that super clean edge on each side. On a similar note, my Goliath just opened a new trap that looks like it has some minor fusing of a few teeth.
