Hi all! During the winter I took a leaf cutting from my Dm Spotty. It made 4 new plantlets, but one of them, doesn't looks like a normal VFT.
It is nearly completely white. Any ideas about how that could be happened?

As you can see, it is standing near another plant that came from the same cutting! It is setting in full sun, for quite all the day, with the other plants!

I wonder if it could make the photosintesis process to live.

I know that White VFTs are present in some collection, and they survive year after year (growing very slowly though)..

Hi Yuri, sometimes this happens.No one knows what to say. Its unusual for spotty,but a white plant is something else,very rare.Any spots on it? :thumbsup:

It doesn't seems to show any red colour.. Just a bit of green on the upper part of the trap..

Green spots on a green plant or green spots on a variegated plant? :)

Leaves Usually Go-WHITE When-They Run-OUT of BOTH Iron-&-Manganese as Cofactors for Coenzymes IN The Photosynthetic-Pathway / Process so-to-Speak. The-Running-OUT Can Be Temporary or Permanent. They-Can Either-be Eluted From-The-Medium (Permanent Unless Re-Added) or Sequestered Within-The-Medium (Usually 'temporary' Unless You've Using some Powerful Ligand Such-as Cyanide or The-Like (Azide) BOTH (Flush-through Using R-Powerful-Ligand so-to-Speak).


OK ... Now-to The-RUB so-to-Speak. IRON Is-One-of R-Handful of Elements-of the Peiodic-Table THART-Can Naturally Pull-NITROGEN Out-of The-Air &-Fix-it IN-R NON-Biological-Manner so-to-Speak. Biological-Systems Make Use-of These-Facts and Make-Them More-Efficient by Incorporating Many-of & Quite-often More-than-One Together IE Molybdenum-&-Iron of-These Atoms as Cofactors IN-Coenezymes so-to-Speak.

Of-Course The Flip-Side of This is-THART This-Process is-Now 'Not'-Random &-Is Usually Controlled-&-Gate &-Can Even-be 'Poisoned' Because We-R-Afteral 'Now'-Dealing-with Very Small Numbers of Atoms & Quantities-of Molecules Indeed ... Rather-Than R-Rich-Lump of Iron or Molybdenum-Containing 'Dirt' so-to-Speak.

Don't-'Think' Either THART You-Can Make-Your WHITE-Plant Go-Green-Again by Shoving-ON some Manganese or Iron-'Salt' so-to-Seak ... For-Things IN The-'Real'-World R-More Complicated Than-THART so-to-Speak!!!??? >(*~*)< / >(*U^)<
