This is the result of many gnats getting trapped by my D. Capensis (super fertilizing). Is this normal or a mutation of some sort? I have to admit that it looks awesome and will be producing many seeds. Maybe I'll even donate some but then again, the seedbank is full of D. Capensis...

I just love how Capensis gobble up Gnats... for that reason alone it makes them integral to any collection.

My Capensis are putting out 2 flower stalks at once!
I even have a couple 3 month olds putting out flower stalks.
Too many seeds for me... :?
