Had been growing this plant under a 7" high humidity dome, but found that the upper growth would push up against the dome's ceiling, and then coil itself around inside the dome.
This cone shaped leaf stolon formed inside the dome.
It had two slits built right into it that served the purpose of draining water away from the leaf surface, letting light in to the growth below and allowing air flow between the upper and lower leaf surfaces.
Or maybe, i'm overthinking this and it is just a deformed leaf stolon.
Anyway, it is no longer under the dome, instead being housed in a taller glass enclosure, allowing the photosynthetic stolons to rise straight up, without the restrictions of the shorter headspace of the dome's enclosure.
I've grown very fond of this vigorous beast since receiving it last year.
It sends out exploratory adventitious stolons that can be used to propagate itself, wherever it can reach to, elsewhere, and it has a long reach.
Sensors in the tendril tips, draw these stolons toward moisture.
Once these tendrils hit the water dish, they begin to make a lot of bladder-traps.
I let one grow in the water dish for about 5 inches, where it made a lot of traps and eventually sent up a long leaf stolon.
Once the leaf stolon had fully unfurled, I snipped the original stolon at soil level, and harvested the whole dang she-bang: stolon, traps, leafy stalk and all, and potted them up in a shallow four inch pot on February 29, 2020.
The first growth coming from it now is a sturdy little flower stalk, now over an inch high.

dvg: ...where the Ys are worn notwithstanding, there is a lot to consider - inside out, upside down, turned backwards, at halfmast, waistband rolled in or out, the tilt, and all of the combinations and permutations of these subtleties and others not mentioned
