On the VFT just cut off the black stuff, leave the green stuff alone.

Drosera filiformis is a relatively fast growing sundew once they come out of dormancy. They are similar in culture to VFT and they can be grown together outside in the summertime in direct sunlight, with some shade during the heat of the day.
In Fall/Winter, reduce watering and keep plants between 40-50 degrees F either in an unheated basement or in the fridge.I like to keep mine in the basement, on the cold floor, and just moist, not wet. To water in wintertime, I use snow from outside to keep both cool and moist.
I put mine outside after threat of frost has past. You can put them out as early as April if you cover them.
