    Possible mutation

    It appears that a fly trap is sprouting from one of the flower stems. Has anybody seen this before?is it a mutation? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    nothing but false vivipary, an occasional morphological (not genetic) quirk where part of the flower anatomy is replaced with a plantlet; you can read more about it on Barry Rice's FAQ here:

    It happens rather regularly in Dionaea and several Drosera species; I just posted pics on IG of a sessilifolia x burmannii hybrid with an apomictic plantlet producing its own flower stalk.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
