    The flower part seems awful healthy too. I was planning on feeding the trap but it got damaged battering against other plants in the high winds we've been having. Ed Read tells me that 'Red Piranha' is prone to growth like this.

    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    I haven't had this happen with Dionaea, but D. capensis did grow a small leaf on the flower stalk. It looked just like a D. peltata leaf. It makes you wonder if this is how erect and climbing tuberous Drosera evolved.

    So, the question now....

    Can I make it a separate plant?

    You could cut it off and root it. That would make a new plant very quickly, especially if it's already a rosette on its own.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    I wonder of it is just a growth fluke or if it will persist?
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    Actually I just realized... If you look closely at my picture those stalks are loaded with carnivorous planlets that didn't quite develop pitchers! I will attempt to cut and root but so far my track record with rooting CPs is about... 50 tries, 0 successes.
