if the plant is well fed it will stop putting out traps
MICKEYS GROW LIST
Neat! I could be from a combination of soil with nutrients and a low amount of light. What brand of peat moss do you use?
Thanks for sharing!

How cool!! 12 hours seems pretty fast growing for a VFT .
In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com
Yes i think this is the problem. Lack of light(problem solved) and too much feedind. My dionea have many years and its the first time i saw that!
I use fafard peat-moss. I know its not the top quality. I will need another bag soon, i will buy another brand.
The dionea you can see is grown in 75% peatmoss 25% sand. I feed almost every new trap. I will let the plant hunt alone now. I water with demineralized water and i never fertilize. And the temp is 28C day and 20C night.
I dont think a leaf without a trap is a "mutant trap"..
it is simply a leaf without a trap..it happens occasionally, not terribly rare.
thats cool! do you fertilize it?
Sarracenia_x: nop! The problem was just too much water. I have a 15inch pot for 12 vfts and i kept them too wet. Now i grow them much more on the dry side, they thrives(red traps) in my sunny room under my strong tubes.
Scot: mutant = abnormal trap.
If a person was born without a hand, would you say they have an "abnormal hand"?
probably not.."mutant" or" abnormal" suggest the thing exists in the first place..
I simply meant to suggest that "I know this leave is, in fact, a mutant trap," isn't technically true..
