Sounds fine. If the plant is not obviously dying and it has red traps than it is likely to be happy with its conditions.

Does the traps change color quickly if they are not happy with the conditions? Also about how long does it take for the traps to open or close?

Hey VFT Will

The trap closing depends on a ton of things

1) age of trap
2) # of times that it has opened and closed
3) temps
4) light


On opening, the trap opens in about a day or so with no food in it. Up to a week after catching a bug.
