    That's the second I've seen, very rare and COOL! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] One of the cp nuseries have the same thing, but only with the traps open...could do a lot of experiments with that...like feeding each of the traps together, or...hey, why don't you do a CUTTING of the trap? Although I suppose that's just a kind of mutation (or change of the parent gene 'instructions' to make leaves - only in THAT leaf), then I don't expect it to show up genetically in the phenotype of the VFT baby...

    Sorry for all the sophisticated scientific talk...hehe, even I am not half sure what the heck I'm rambling on about, but it COULD make sense if you think about it...

    Does this feature only show up on one leaf? If so then that's just a temporary mutation in that leaf, not in the genes of the plant - keep the photos well! These don't come along very often...phew, when I saw the topic title I thought it was a new breed of VFT!

    *Drooling* And I thought singaporean cpers don't grow soooo many different species...very nice website indeed, Ebeyonder!

    Ps. is the D.intermidia plantlets still on offer? If so could you spare one or two...my last and only baby intermedia from Hong Yee 'died' due to my overloading it with red ants (stupid me, I didn't know that ants secrete citric acid when they caught...) [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] Now its stunned and can't produce no more leaves, although two tiny (still-forming) leaves still look green, but it keeps getting indunated by algae and I keep having to dig it up out of a rotting hole of sphagnum moss and repot it again...I'm not sure it will work though, but I still have hope since I am sure its still alive... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] (tried washing it to get rid of algae + acid too) [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    I`m pretty sure that it`s just where two petioles have fused together,I highly doudt it`s genetic,although some plants may have a genetic tendency towards "fused petioles".
