I don't think I've seen a report of results from a pullings/cuttings comparison of new leaves vs freshly fed leaves. Your theory is intriguing.
Maybe you should give it a try on a typical VFT and a typical Cape.
Wait until the two newest traps/paddles are fully opened, then feed/fertilize the second newest trap/paddle, but nothing to the newest trap/paddle. Wait two, maybe three days, then harvest the two newest traps/paddles and set them both in the same conditions; ie., peat/perlite mix or pure LFSM, side by side, same temps, same light, etc. On the VFT's, cut the traps off to avoid mold (as you already surmised).
This experiment should be short, one season, two at most. Let us know what you find.
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is that I make bad decisions.
