...strangely this plant sits in amongst 10 others none of which are displaying the same problem.
I have a flytrap that sits by many other plants (VFT's, sundews, Sarracenia), and seems to get spider mites every year. At least, it's the first to show signs of spider mites. It may be more sensitive to them, or weaker than the other VFT's, and simply shows signs faster. At that point I likely have spider mites on a number of plants, but in such small numbers that it's easy to eradicate them, and the uninfested plants get a light preventative application.
Whatever the reason, when that VFT starts to show indications of being hit, I break out the Avid and lightly treat everything for a few weeks, and it knocks them out.
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is that I make bad decisions.
