    These shots are a few years old, but I was curious if anybody else had this happen to them. These were totally independent of each other and functioned properly. If I could only get it to do this all the time!
    With the plants I have now growing so close together I wouldn't know if there was one like that in there. I got lucky and caught this one.

    There's an article in the September 2006 issue of Carnivorous Plant Newsletter (vol 35, No 3) the Journal of the International Carnivorous Plant Society on that very subject. "Observations of a Two-Headed Flytrap" pg 74-75.

    Odd that this should happen in the summer of 2003 (as noted in the article) also, unless of course you are the very same author
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    No, wasn't me.
    I had heard that it was not that rare of a thing to happen, but figured I would see if anybody else had pictures of there own to show.

    Unfortunately all of the cool mutations are temporary

    If there was a permanent mutation like that I'd gladly shell out the cash.

    Just like Clint mentioned, it is a common occurrence. I have seen it mentioned in a number of books, sites, and forums. I believe the last one I saw on this forum was vraev's.
