why haven't my Venus fly traps re opened, i have a Venus Fly Trap that has many heads and some of them re open within 24 hours but i have 4 heads that haven't in a week?



taking a while to digest whatever you fed them on Neal? Hopefully not a snail which is what someone gave the poor plant. Welcome to GoY by the way.

Each trap can only shut and re-open 3 or 4 times, so if you like to tease it a lot, and it can't get its own bugs, give it a bit of raw ground chicken or turkey--ground beef is usually too fatty-- every week or two, to help it replace worn out leaves.
