I recently germinated a lot of VFT seeds and many came up looking normal and nice, however, one came up sporting an extra Cotyledon which I find quite strange. It appears to be growing quite well and was wondering if this is a common mutation in VFT's or if anyone has had experience with this in the past. Thanks! Happy Growing!
It’s actually a pretty common occurrence with a lot of seedlings.
Something triggers the response that it needs to produce more. Not sure why but it happens. Seen it with VFTs and hens and chicks and some succulents.
I thing to worry about.
Had a VFT that I hand pollinated. Produced seed and several now have 3 cottledons. 1 had 4 before any traps started to grow. Maybe just a weird biological response. All had the same light and water. So not sure that’s the root cause.
