Hi there,

I have two lots of separate potted VFT's which have come out of hibernation and are doing very well in the New Zealand summer, but it seems one of the plants has started developing unusual fly traps, Is this normal? Pictures attached.

Definitely not normal, but it does happen from time to time. Enjoy the odd traps while they last!
