Hey y'all

First, I hope the move is going well for M and L!
I just noticed that on one of my plants, two petioles are growing double traps; one has two traps growing from one "vein", and the other actually has a "Y" shaped vein which splits and each one leads to a trap. Both double traps are on the same plant.

Is this common? I've never seen it before. It would be cool if it continues and there comes to be a two headed trap cultivar! But let me not get ahead of myself. Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

Keep on trappin"!

It has been known to happen. Similar to false vivipary, there are many things that can cause it.

It is likely to happen. The cultivar "Jaws" tends to be more likely to produce them. But still, it is an awesome mutation!
