    Has anyone ever seen a binata or other forked sundew split into 3 branches? My binata "Giant T-Form" has just put out a new leaf and it has 3 branches. darndest thing you ever saw!

    Any sort of explanation for this behavior?

    My d. binata regularly puts out three and four forks in addition to it's usual two.

    There are other cultivars that do some funky branching - "Multifida Extrema", "Marston Dragon",...

    Every now and then my D. dichotoma will fork on one side and not on the other, giving it a ternary look. I think it has to do with the growing conditions or something; the odd leaves only show up shortly after I've gone too long without watering or moved the plant to a new location.

    Interesting. THis is the first time my binata has decided to put out 3 branches on a fork. Condition-wise, the only thing to happen is that our weather has warmed appreciably in the last week or two while it was developing.

    It looks cool, I was just wondering if it was common. Now, I see that it is.

    Thanks,

    Sam

    Wait, you mean there are three branches from a single forking point? Can you post a picture? I just meant that mine branches unevenly sometimes; one side of the main leaf will just be straight with one point, and the other side will fork into two. Three branches from one point sounds pretty unique to me.

    Seedjar, the most common forking is 2 on one side, and 1 on the other for the three pointer.
