I repotted my VFT but one of the leaves are in shade, will that be a big problem?

RE: Shade

If you are indicating that some leaves are overlying the others or that one leaf is facing away from sunlight, do not worry so much about it. That is natural. In the wild, Venus Flytraps often grow in clumps and near other low lying plants, so not all of their leaves will receive the same amount of light. The plant knows how to deal with it and will grow leaves facing the light properly.
