    Lately my Green Dragons have been producing some strangely deformed traps. I havent noticed any insects nibbling on them or anything like that. Its been happening on different plants so I cant say that its just 1 plant going bad. The affected plants are all planted in the same mini-bog, and are all in various stages of flowering. I suspect that flowering is the cause but was wondering if anyone else might have an opinion as to whats causing this.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    Sorry, Steve. I hate to be the one to break this to you, but it looks like your plants are strung out on Superthrive. Evidently its been withheld, and they are JONESING!!!!!! Works that way sometimes. Better put them in rehab, and spray them with orthene. That will calm them down.

    Superthrive? Never touch the stuff. I just gave them a good dosage of Orthene about 2 weeks ago.

    I think Lord Humungus had the same problem as you. It seemed to be a red cloned vft too, so maybe it is some type of t/c mutation that happens every once in a while?

    Well then its toxic poisoning due to orthene. (Am I giving you a bad time?? HOPE SO!!!) Mine did the same a little earlier in the year, and now they look fine. Wait'em out and see what happens.

    ....and if it doesn't straighten out on its own, you got yourself a cultivar! It'll go right alongside of mr. Zeimer's 'Wacky Traps'!

    Its a Kind of Foliar Spray.

    its a concentraited substance based with Hormones and Vitamins the plants like. Dilute the dosage and spray youre plants every 2 weeks, explosion in growth with out Any insects.

    Its exspecialy good for neps.

    Any ways,
    thats happaneing with one of my Store bought VFT's I think it is probably a TC deformation. But so far Its getting realy red leaves. Dont know why they would TC a red form instead of a common. Oh well, But IT hapend When I moved the VFT outdoors.
    Hope every thing goes well from you.
