Hi so one of my vft is growing really slow. As you can see all the other leaves are deformed and won’t close so I’m really counting on this one to grow. usually it’s take 5-7 days to open but it’s been like this for weeks it gets 8-9 hours of sun a day. What’s wrong with it.

Have you been feeding it? It looks like all of the traps are spent.

Yeah, @Panman is correct. It looks like it's caught something, or closed on something. Wait for new growth.
