I'm that other grower . Yeah, thanks Dewy for picking me to experiment on your plant .I sent one off to another grower so we will see what happens...
Crazy numbers of trigger hairs aren't going to do very much good. Debris, water drops, small bugs...all these will trigger the traps more readily than a normal flytrap. I have a few 6 trigger hair guys that always have every trap closed with a fly. VFTs are good at what they do already. If more trigger hairs were better, vfts in the wild would have more!if it continues doing this next year what should I do?
However, assuming that it's in the genes, I don't think that this plant is particularly pretty. Personally, I like the symmetry of 3 trigger hairs per side of trap; but that's just my opinion
So, I'll grow one plant and see if growing conditions affect the amount of trigger hairs produced.
By next summer we'll know for sure!
