    Why are their little nublettes on the ends of some of my Calcyfida leaves? Are they baby plants, or are they things for traps to attach to?

    Another question... Just out of curiosity... How big to Calcyfida traps get? What kind of prey can they catch

    Thanks!!!

    My guess is that they are baby plants. It's not unusual for utrics to grow new vegetative organs from leaves. This is one of the arguments against calling them "leaves".
