    Is this branching normal on a vft?

    I've seen it before. And it is a characteristic of Dionaea 'Petite Dragon'

    The flower scape is about 12 cm tall and always bifurcates into two flower clusters, a large and small one

    Thanks for the input. After reading the links content and others I have decided that knowing them technical terms makes searchin ezier. Thought "inflorescence" (even if I spelt it wrong) wuz a big wurd ,I thought it was "branched" they say it's "bifurcated".

    This isn't so surprising when you think about it. After all, flowers are really just highly modified leaves, so if some bizarre hormonal accident happened, this might happen. Still, that's pretty uncommon, pretty odd, and pretty pretty.
