Another interesting variegated flytrap. Thanks for sharing!

The frequency of variegated flytraps seems to be increasing. I still wonder if the variegation is possibly a virus. I grow a few variegated varieties myself and they seem to be perfectly normal in terms of vigor and the variegation does not seem transmissible, but I haven't thoroughly tested that yet.

It might be easier in stead of spraying, to inject them, i think if it is a virus, it has had an non plant host.
