    Steve & Buggy, here is my guess. I need not tell you Bay Area folks that this has been a strange climate year. We had a very warm and sunny February and all my VFTs came out of dormancy and started putting up flower scapes. Then March and April turned cold and rainy and everything went back into semi-dormancy. My outside plants have just resumed growth within the last couple of weeks and many of them have deformed traps. I think that these were traps that were starting to develop in February and then stalled. I bet that subsequent traps will be normal.

    According to Barry Rice, Suprethrive is nothing more than B vitamins and the equivalent of "snakeoil".

    Boy! Superthrive is a ROOTING HORMONE, and vitamins. Not for anything but rooting your cuttings. NOT for a foliar spray. It does give plants a real boost the first few times you use it as such, but they settle down after a few sprays, and resume the same old growth pattern. It is often misused and given a bad name by those who claim their plants grew taller than a telephone pole, or their VFT got so big, it ate the mailman. AND, took the family dog with it. A ROOTING HORMONE WITH VITAMINS. That's all.
    Please use it correctly.

    As far as I know it's best to use for getting a plant over repotting/poor care shock. Use it maybe once or twice a year. Anything more isn't going to do you any good, as the plants will have given their rooting-all.
