Dear Angie,

Did anyone else answer? Anyway, you would have to test the leaf
for carnivory on a individual basis, I think. It's probably just
a freak, after all, even the sepals and petals are modified leaves.
Sometimes, plants make a mistake and grow 'normal' leaves, or even
whole plants, in place of bracts or flowers buds.
