Hello everyone!
Hope you doing great, you and your wonderful flytraps!
I have this south west giant a year now. This year the main plant has shown some weird chlorotic stripes only on the traps not the leaves.
Does anyone know what is that?

Thanks for your reply!
You like it? It didnt catch anything.
I closed it to take the photo!
For me it looks like CMV infection but i am not 100% sure.

Not so much like. I just think it looks kind of cool. What exactly is CMV Infection? I tried looking it up but everything I seen was for humans. As I am sure you are aware, closing flytraps will cause it to die off prematurely.

CMV means cucumber mosaic virus. I have posted a photo of a cucumber leaf with the infection. The mosaic patern seems the same, to me at least.

It looks like a virus to me. Itcould bw genetic but treating it for a virus won't hurt. I'd start with Bioadvanced 3-in-1.
