Normal Drosera tracyi plants occasionally produce individual leaves with slightly forked ends, (usually < 25 mm deep). Very rarely, groups of individuals may be found within otherwise normal populations that appear genetically inclined to exhibit regular and extreme forking of their leaves. Plants from seed or leaf cuttings of these carry on the trait and it appears that the trait may eventually be developed even further by selective breeding.
