    Good question I'll have to look! Nice catch Est!

    EDIT: pic...a little oversized and a tad out of focus, but you can make out the trigger hairs....one hair is on the mutated portion!

    Does the folded half work? If the main trap eats a bug, what happens to the inside portion...does it die?

    Hey guys,

    Hellz, this only happens once in a while, it could be easily propagated but its a more spontaneous mutation than regular...I have noted that crowed VFT plant do this mutation more frequent then solitary or spaced out plants.

    VTPTFATHAVFT, I've had some other ones like 2 traps on one leaf (have to find it in my folders) and a half a trap before.

    Nflytrap, I have no idea, it may bea paralyzed trap.

    Ok, I could make out the hairs in the last picture you posted, does the addition have trigger hairs as well?

    That's what I wanna know! It'd be cool to see how well/if the mutated trap works (well, each respective "half". Very interesting.


    ----addition---

    NepG, would you be so kind as to supply us with a picture of the 'addition'? Furthermore, can you tell us anything about the 'addition'; is it still growing, and other abnormalities besides the placement?
