    Also, if you happen to have access to a willow tree, you can put willow cuttings in a cup of distilled water. Give it a week or two and the water will look filmy. That film is rooting and growth hormone; you can use that water to drench your new plant, thereby providing rooting hormone.

    Looking at the traps again on the picture on my phone, I can't tell if maybe the traps are just so immature that they look cupped. I'm going to go out and take pictures now.

    How rare is false vivipary supposed to be? I get a bunch.

    I just read that willow tree trick the other day. I may try it.

    I have never personally had false vivaproy occur, so perhaps that is why it is s interesting to me. I wonder if there is something about your location and/or conditions that encourages it.

    What media and water are you using and what kind of lit do your plants receive?

    Seeds of a cupped plant will most likely not be cupped, though, as the genetic cards get shuffled and redealt, so to speak.

    No offense to anyone! Either way, I always find false vivapory exciting.
    I did say that if the mutant gene was isolated from the "normal" gene on the stalk, then it could be possible. I just find that it's a bit hectic, and, hey, I haven't yet seen a case of this. My guess is just theoretical.

    Oh, and about the no offense: none taken.

    We all make our mistakes!

    But other people always correct us!

    Well, sometimes...

    Always!

    Sometimes!

    Always!...
