I realised some of my VFTs produces trapless leaves. What do you guys normally do with it? is it important?

because some people might snip it off to save 'plant energy' and deem those as useless.

This happens when there is not enough light or when the plant is going through dormancy

My VFT have a few rosettes. The main one is producing smaller traps than the previous and the other rosettes are producing trapless leaves.
I'm wondering if it is going through dormancy or it is dying slowly due to lack of light.

Have your venusflytraps go through dormancy yet. If you have maybe it's because of light. Last time this occurred to me was when the roots were rotting

Ps was busy. :P/>/>/>

Heres the pic! It appear they are producing mini traps and some of the leaves are just trapless

Nope. They have not gone through dormancy yet

Looks like an offshoot to me.
