    Thanks.

    No, it's usually just a one-shot deal (and I've never seen it twice on the same plant) but both traps generally work -- at least, they have in the past. Like I mentioned before, it is not that uncommon a mutation, and I usually see it once a year or so, considering the large number of plants . . .

    Here's a recent shot of the double trap. Those that I have had in the past were more tightly connected to one another -- a "four-lobed" trap -- so this one is interesting. The dots there are a nasty infestation by spider mites (very bad this year in California) and those particular plants were isolated and nuked by Ortho®. Everything is fine now . . .
