The plant looks healthy overall with lots of new growth, but some traps are turning black around the perimeter, which spreads until the whole trap turns black. This is happening on this year's growth. What could be causing this?

It could be many reasons why it's turning black, from envoiremental reasons to just old age.

Can you tell us a bit more about the plant? What's your climate, what kind of medium it's planted on? what kind of water do you use? Is the trap old?

Yours is just an old trap that is dying.
