    Hey folks , My vft that i got from vft flowered a while ago and the weird thing about it is that the flower had more then the usual amount of petals . i thought that this was just 1 deformit and nothing to hassle about but then all the other flwoers bloomed and looked the same . Has anyone had this problem ? I don't think it's a problem but a cool mutation but if it keeps doing this every year and stays stable like this I might have a new cp cultivar [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] . Heres a pic of one of the flowers . [img]http://home.**********.com/users/goldtrap2690/Picture%20132.jpg[/img] I think I'll call it Dionaea muscipula ' Tarnok ' just like the double petaled S. leucophylla ' Tarnok ' .

    nice pict! i agree with you that it might be a candidate for a new cultivar. as one that has let his vft's flower for the first time this year, i can say that that's a really sweet flower!

    i think it's time to divide and propagate!

    peace,

    Goldtrap,
    The flower also looks like it has twice the number of anthers. Does the flower have two stigmas? I cannot tell from your photo.
