    Wacky Traps looking wacky.. what is that?

    While snapping some pics of the baby Wacky Traps and its double headed leaf, i noticed something odd.. The traps(all of them) are covered in weird little goldish colored dots.. I dont think they're a parasite or eggs, only thing I can think of is its crystalized ferts from when I misted them with Maxsea? This plant is so tiny that the dots are barely visible to the naked eye.. Didnt see them until taking the macros..

    That's bizarre... What a sad plant.

    Perhaps abnormally large nectar glands?

    That was my initial thought too. Are the bumps only on the inside of the traps? Take a close look with a hand-lens. Do they look like this

    I tried to look at my Wacky Traps, but they are still dormant and no traps are open yet.

    Was hoping you'd see this Bob..

    Thanks for the links.. Yeah I dare say they may be.. BUT they're also along the very top edge of the trap.. like on edge of the trap lip. Pointing up.. Would glands be found there as well? I was thinking maybe its dried nectar?

    dunno. hard to apply morphology to this one as it is an abomination . Due to the alteration in the trap structure it might be possible that some things may not be found in places you might expect.
