Hi guy, does anyone of you has ever seen such a crest on the back of petioles?

Is that a common trait for that clone??

That type of cresting on the petioles is common with the small-trapped, fused-marginal-spines Venus Flytrap clones, including "Long Red Fingers" and "Cross Teeth." The cresting also happens on quite a few other clones at times, although perhaps ironically, seemingly not as often (in my experience) on the clone named for that trait, "Crested Petioles." :smile:

On the subject of these VFTs ("Long Red Fingers" and "Cross Teeth." "Crested Petioles") I dont have them on my survey yet, even though they are common enough. Any growers fancy adding their experiences of these plants?
