    Exclamation My dionea have a normal round leaf

    My dionea is developping a real normal leave ! like any other plant.
    I know this leave is, in fact, a mutan trap, but its really cool anyway

    dionea

    dionea muscipula

    And this leaf was not there yesterday!
    The plant put out this leaf in 12hours max.

    I had to share that :P

    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.

    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.
