Alright so i have a couple of traps turning brown and black, and i was wondering for cutting them off do i just cut off the trap or the whole leaf part with the trap?

Thanks in advance.

If the leaf balde is still green, keep it, it can still be used to gain energy through photosynthesis, only get rid of the bits that are brown :)

cut the trap but if possible leave the leaf, It can still phtosynthesize light for additional food as long as it is green Pardon the spelling i cant spell photosynthesize.
