At the end of last season and after my trap flowered I repotted my trap in a mix of Pertite and Pete moss. The trap is growing again however all the new little traps keep turning brown and appear to be dying. There is a abundance of new healthy traps growing.
Watering with distilled water.
I had the bottom 2" of the pot submerged in a fish/ plant pond. I have taken it out of the pond for now and the bottom of the pot is submerged in distilled water. Any ideas why the new traps keep dying?

Likely it was too wet. In a pot that size, you will only want about 1/2 inch of water in the tray and you will want to let the tray dry out between watering.
What's the difference?
