    Breed a plant that produces those regularly and you'll be a millionaire.

    That being said, I'd like to see a double-trap on one of mine sometime. I like freaks and deformities. :P

    Have you recently treated them with a pesticide or fungicide? I've seen similar growth on plants that have been.

    There is already a double trapped cultivar called "Mirror".

    I'd heard of them, but some of those pictures are impressive. They're definitely on my wishlist.

    I was talking more specifically about "double-headed" leaves, and presuming both traps could be functional.

    Mirror looks different than that though, it has the extra traps on the back of the "normal" one, not next to it facing the same direction.
    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

    I would only own plants with functional traps, that is, to me, the greatest part of all carnivorous plants.

    99.9% of the cultivars out there will never make it onto my wish list. They either look too close to typical flytraps, another cultivar or are just total mutants. Have you seen "Fondue" or "Whacky Traps" ? Both of those along with many others should have been culled straight out of TC. There's even a totally trapless cultivar. Now who in their right mind would ever want THAT ?
