What’s a “shock trap” on a Venus flytrap?

When someone says that their Venus flytrap plant is putting out “shock traps,” this usually means that the traps are smaller and deformed in some way. It is common to see shock traps in early spring, after repotting or when a Venus flytrap is stressed from something like lack of water, parasites, or bad water.
