I planted a seed mix and let my plants spend the summer outside. They've gotten really happy but now I really see the differences between them. Anybody have any idea what some of their varieties may be? I'm not familiar with any.
Dionaea muscipula is a single species, meaning that pretty much all VFTs are the same. The cool thing about VFT is that they look different, even from the same batch of seeds, that's why people started to name them and register some cultivar names. Right now, there are hundreds or thousands of registered names, if you think you have a cool looking one, you could register it too! Hope that helps, Willy

Hi Chamelea, check out the International Carnivorous Plant Society website, www.carnivorousplants.org. These are the guys you will have to contact in order to officially register anything. Nice plants, nice growing. Cheers!
