I also have the same problem.
It makes my VFT look ugly.
Any known solutions?

Just wondering, could it be fert damage or sth else? My VFT don't get such deformed traps even under 35-37 degree heat where they are grown.

I should consider changed the title to "Vft Heat Stress. Period." :lol:/>

nep, seriously the plants are stressed by heat. My T5s run at night so the plants get exposed to high temperatures day and night.

If you get a three headed leaf, you can register your own "Cerberus" cultivar =P

I only got an occasional fused tooth on mine (growing out in the morning sun)
