I understand that this may just be a mess up same as the carnivorous flowers on drosera but i have never heard of this before so would like some info on why it is doing this unhappy? Because i beat the time record for its trap making and progressive size. Stress?

You cant see it clearly because of my phone but all the little white dots are trigger hairs

Looks normal enough to me. Sometimes leaves are produced that just aren't completely normal. Not indicative of stress or poor health in anything.

I have now noticed that the trait is consistent every trap all my vfts make have 6 trigger hairs on one side and 4 on the other i guess its just a mutant

Sounds cool.

You should look up a Venus Flytrap called "Trigger Happy".

Enjoy your unique plant! :D
