I bought my first venus fly trap a month or so ago from a local garden centre. It's grown since but all the leaves lie flat or droop over the edge of the plant pot. I thought originally this was due to lack of sunlight in the garden centre but there has been no improvement. Additionally, some of the new tiny buds on the end of a leaf that have yet to grow into a new trap have turned black, while others are fine. I'm not concerned about the adult traps that are blackened as they've all caught something or other recently.
I keep it inside but move it outside when it's sunny. I started it in mild shade outside originally but have progressed to full sun. I bottom water around an inch at a time, whenever the soil begins to dry out, and I'm being careful not to over water! Can anyone offer any advice? Thanks!
