Thought I would share.
I saw this inside a trap of 'La Grosse a Guigui' and thought it was a tiny green caterpillar - nope, whatever it is - it's growing out of the trap!
I guess this is a form of false vivipary? Will have to wait and see what develops.

No, that's just a small, localized mutation. False vivipary only occurs on the flower stalk.
However, the next best thing to false vivipary is more akin to the Alien creature from Panmans gif. This one actually has a trap growing from one of the trigger hairs.
