    Freak Spring leaves . . .

    Here is one of my Justina Davis plants, which has just produced a set of three successive mutant leaves, reminiscent of the "Pom Pom" variety seen from time to time -- apparently associated with tissue culture anomalies. This is the second year that it has done this.

    Dionaea muscipula cv. "Justina Davis"

    so justina's a cheerleader now?
    so i guess the question is, does justina "naturally" produce pom-pom like leaves or did justina go through an accident while being replicated in the TC flask?

    My 'Justina Davis' hasn't been making odd leaves to that extreme, but on the petiole, there are small, dark green ridges, not unlike the TC mutation that goes by the name "Crested Petioles".

    Funny you should say that, Liz, but mine is... D:

    There is a "Pom Pom" variety (is it a cultivar?); but apparently the odd leaves only last a short while and are replaced by normal traps . . .
