I just realized on my G16 That one of the traps died before even opening!!!!

Frustrating because things have been going so well!!!

Anyway, some info to work with.

- Got it a month ago
- Artificial lighting, Everyone seems happy enough though
- I've now stopped giving them lighting 24/7 maybe a week ago, but they still receive 14+
- Once a week I Tray feed my plants with distilled water for 30 min to an hour trying to avoid "Wet"

I'll get a photo of it up here in a bit.
Dumbest question on this thread coming up.
Does having more plants in the surface area of the lighting means I may need more light? They're not literally eating more light than can be passed around.... right?...

It's the upright trap on the far left.

Answer to first question is NO, unless more plants are expanding the area that light source doesn't cover inside light foot print. Answer to second question is NO, unless plants are overlapping each other. If all plants are inside light foot print with no plants blocking each other from light then everyone should be happy.

Somebody else who is more familiar with VFT will be able to tell you why your's is responding this way. Good Luck
