They probably still share the same rhizome so you can feed just the mother plant and the baby plant will still get some nutrients.

There's a heightened suspense seeing the bright red traps hungry ready to snap, waiting open Then i get ticked off if I see the plant caught something... like the thrill is over so fast.

we only have a few traps that are exceptionally large compared to the rest of our plants (a couple B52 traps that are just a haaaaaaair over 1" and 1 single trap on our larger pinnacle that is also just a touch over 1") they look so massive even at that size compared to the rest and anytime they are open I am like phew....look at you! each time I walk by... but they dont tend to stay open long outdoors here haha. then its the patiently awaiting reopen!

I think my biggest traps are 1" that's on both my b52 and my big mouth, maybe one slightly bigger on b52. I always looking waiting for closed traps to open lol. The ones set off accidently, usually open 2-3 days fairly quick. The ones that have been fed longer, some that I've fed 2 week ago are still closed but nice and green
