    Hello,
    I have a flytrap, but it's newest trap doesn't have any trigger hairs. Another one of my plants has a flowers talk, it split into two scapes, and theres several traps growing in-between the fork! what's with this?

    A mutation that is either genetic or cultural. It could also be caused by excess chemicals that where left over from tc.

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!

    Ouch Nick, that hurt! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    No trigger hairs? Does it close? Weird

    As for the traps on the flower scape, that's not all that unheard of. It does occasionally happen, and you can actually pot up that part of the flower scape. I forget the name of the mutation...someone help me out here.... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    I don't think it is a mutation because of it's frequency of occurance. But I do remember the name of it, it's called Vegetative Appomixis. Weird name huh? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    Vegetative Appomixis is when the flower produces traps and not seeds, this is not what I';m seeing with my VFT [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]. I'll get a pic tonight
