Dionaea muscipula (Soland. ex Ellis)
"Pom Pom"

This VFT "Pom Pom" was received from Lois Ochs on 21 May 2010. The original leaves died back, but new ones are now emerging. The photos were taken on 9 July 10.

Also known as "Hedgehog" and "Scrub Brush". I know of three people who had "Pom Pom" VFTs. The plants emerged independently from each other. All were TC accidents. All plants went back to normal growth after some time, a year or so. It will be interesting to see how my plant develops over time.

So, here is the same plant on 6 May 2011. The traps did indeed revert to normal traps.

And, on 23 March 2012, the traps were still normal traps.
