    After reppoting, the weird traps

    Having some fun finding these. Now just waiting for the triplet to open. Should be interesting (and yes I've been looking for aphids )

    I'm getting traps like the second picture on my sunburned 'Justina Davis' - they haven't opened yet but almost the same shape.

    I've noticed deformed trap formation after transplanting. It's probably due to stress to the plant and pressure placed on the growing point. I just get shriveled/non-existent traps - nothing exotic. The 'Justina Davis' wasn't even repotted - just moved from a tank to a windowsill.

    I can't wait to see the triple-header fully developed.

    Same thing on my Red Piranha. All of the new traps are all twisty and deformed after its transplant this spring.

    Wild. It looks like the first trap might be able to function; but, the second and third ones are too connected in the middle where the bug can just walk out. Feed it and find out!
