If it's only affecting one plant, and everything about their care is the same as your other plants, it's unlikely to be mineral burn. Maybe that spot gets less/more airflow. Maybe that spot gets light reflected off a window so it gets hotter. Maybe those plants have a mutation in their genetics that just make them weaker. Sometimes it just happens without an obvious reason.
I have a few VFT's doing the same thing, I can't explain it. The last VFT I bought from FTS actually had two small plants and they got planted side by side in the same pot. One has taken off, the other will grow leaves that has the traps blacken and die well before they open. It's still green, so it can still photosynthesize, but I'm concerned for dormancy. Same cultivar, same pot, same media, same tray, same water, same lighting, same airflow; everything exactly the same, but one is struggling.
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is that I make bad decisions.
