Should I prune this?
Just ordered this gorgeous Venus fly trap!! I read that it’s normal for some of the branches to die and you should prune them. However, I’m not sure if I can / how to prune this one that’s wrapped around a healthy branch. Any advice?

Hahaha self cannibalism? You can just snip the bottom and it might come off with a little tug. Otherwise it for sure will in a couple days.
@Mrsjenger thanks!! And yeah…never thought a plant could be a cannibal lol!
Maybe using tweezers to carefully get that one stem off the other?
I agree with @Mrsjenger!
