    Odd Genlisea Traps

    I decided to take some trap cuttings of G. hispidula today, and noticed something a bit strange.

    The plant is producing one-armed traps on one side, and normal two-armed traps on the other. I checked and am certain I didn't simply snap the arms of some of them. There are small "stumps" where the other arm failed to develop.


    (Sorry for bad cell-phone pic quality).

    There's nothing odd going on here. Most of the traps branch off but some do not. I've noticed this on every one of my Genlisea plants.
