    Deformed trap?

    My Lowe's VFT has this strange deformed trap. I took this pic with my phone just now and circled the trap in question. Is this just a mutation, or a sign of something wrong?

    It's not uncommon for VFTs to make a deformed trap. Considering also the health of a Lowes VFT, I wouldn't worry about it.

    That's pretty normal, there's even a cultivar called angel wings that has a refined form of the trait.

    The plant needs more light, but otherwise twisted leaves happen.....
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
