Warty baby flytraps
I couldn't find any other postings about this. Maybe someone has seen this: I started out with three flytraps five or so years ago that bud and split like crazy - I've probably had a total of 300 so far (I sell most of them). Anyway, I just had to move to a place where the sun is not as great as it used to be, but so far it's adequate. About twenty of the tiniest baby plants I split off are acting strange. The littlest plants usually don't survive as well as the bigger-bulbed babies that bud off so I was prepared to see them shrivel up. But it's been five months now and they still haven't died or grown leaves. If you peak under the sphagnum you see a little crown of warty-looking knots. I keep waiting for the poor things to die, but they just keep making little warty-looking things. I'm thinking that maybe after all those years of non-sexual reproduction maybe the genes are wearing out?
