Must be something in the air/water within my greenhouse - I've currently got two oddball mutants in my Dionaea collection. Exhibit A - mutant trap on a seed grown Dionaea. As you can see, this clone has much reduced marginal lashes similar to bristle teeth and the like, so I guess the likelihood for mutation might be higher? Exhibit B - a rather interesting fasciated flower stalk & flower on D. m. 'Charly Mandon's Spotted'. From the first sight of the flower stalk, you could clearly see the triple-fused stem so I isolated the curiosity and kept an eye on the growth. I then saw the multiple flower buds (to be expected on 3x the stem)... What I didn't expect was a fasciated (or cristate) flower form with complete fusing across the top!
How common is fasciation in Drosera as I think a slip up with mine has caused some. Some of the leaves ended up with damage because of enviromental change so I'm 70% sure it is not from a virus... fingers crossed. Images are alittle fuzzy sorry about that but the leaves in them are at least twice as wide as the other 'normal' ones. Are these indeed exhamples of Fasciation?
