    Some of the traps on my biggest vft are growing really curly and twisted. And on one trap one side of it grew smaller than the other so it has one really big side and one small side, it's weird. My flytrap has ate 8 bugs this month! Could this be caused from overeating or what. Its not aphids either [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    Anybody know what caused it? Or is it just normal, it seems to be on the fall leafs that are just coming on. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    pepperoni, and green peppers, mushrooms, olives, chives.

    I think that might be normal. Once in a while my VFT's will grow a trap that doesn't completly develop. As long as there is new growth, and the rest of the plant is healthy I think you're fine.
    I miss my old signature
