I noticed on one of my vft traps, there was a brownish mold. I remeber reading in the SG that there was a type of mold that would grow on pitcher plants that was harmless, but i dont have a copy anymore. Should there be any need for concern?

A rust colored mold? Your positive it is mold and not sphagnum in it's single cell stage? If it is in deed a fungi, I would watch extreamly closely or treat it anyways because a colored mold is definetly not the type that normally lives with them
