Hello, dear friends

Today I noticed among my Byblis a very strange one.



To get even more strange it developed three capsules on the tip of the stem, instead of the normal lonely one.


What do you think? Is this one species I didn’t know yet or is just a troubled plant?

I'd say it's probably just some random variation. I've had similar things happen to other plants in my collection. Mainly drosera flowers, but I wouldn't be shocked if one of my byblis started doing that. I'd be worried if it shows up more or seems to harm the plant.
