 It sounds like you have a fungi called Anthracnose. This fungi attacks VFTs
during high humidity and high temps. To combat this disease first remove
affected traps, then spray with Ortho or Dragon, 3336wp. Read the label on
the fungicide for best application. The fungi spreads when the moisture is
high so avoid wetting the foliage. Keep your plants in full sun where it
gets good ventilation. This will help. Hope this helps,
