    Dionaea muscipula 'Trichterfalle' - an odd flytrap clone

    I'm really liking this plant. I've only been growing it since September 2009 and when I received it from Bob Ziemer, it was very small. But it grew quite a bit over the winter and has done very well this growing season. Here are a few photos for those of you that haven't seen it or for those of you that just like looking at photos



    A couple of closeups of the "scaling" (I think that's what most people call it) on the leaves.



    The weird traps, which are fused on the proximal end, are only present later in the summer and fall. In the spring, the traps are fairly normal in appearance. A closeup of the odd traps:

    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    The weird protrusions on the leaves is similar to the mutant forms of Faucaria tigrina & F. tuberculosa cv 'Super Warty'

    The normal traps catch prey fine. I've not seen the weird traps catch anything nor have I tried feeding them.

    That is absolute BIZARRE. But not entirely bad looking. It's almost as if those "scales" are the first step towards flytraps forming drosera-like tentacles. (in my dreams)

    Thanks! And about adding it to your collection, I got it started in tissue culture this year. I have at least several hundred of them now in jars that will need to be potted out and should be available for distribution to many growers next growing season at some point. So, if you'd really like to, you should be able to get your hands on one.

    It's true. The scales are a very interesting mutation. It makes me wonder if it is a throwback to the days when flytraps were transitioning from sticky tentacles to a more sophisticated trapping mechanism.
