Hello, everyone. I am a new member here and recently received my first flytrap as a B52 from Joel's Carnivorous Plants. I did a ton of research on my flytrap and am very excited to help it grow. It has been 3 days like the instructions said to wait before feeding it. Today I fed one of my traps a grub that I found by searching under a large rock, and used tweezers to feed it. Surprisingly, once the trap closed on its meal, the grub began pushing on the walls of the trap to try to escape. It pried the trap open about every minute (just slightly) and it would immediately close back up. Gladly, in about 10 minutes it stopped struggling or died inside. Is there any chance that I somehow managed to hurt it?
