    Oh yes, I luv them even if I didn't ask for them. I'm just bumbed I didn't get a Nep. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] If you are looking for Bigmouths, try digging through the typicals. See, I looked at this places VFTs and saw they had some bigmouths and crimpsons mixed in so I turn to my Dad and say "oh hey cool, they have more then typical types here, I'll have to come back some time"... I ment in the spring cus VFT are hard to deal with here in the winter but I guess it gives me something to do. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] The first one I opened was a really nice one with good color... but the second is on the edge of albino but I think it's just a dull colored one. I'll offer cuttings once these two are astablished I think [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Maybe I can trade parts of VFT for parts of Neps. LOL!

    Hun? Bigmouth is a whole group of breeds, it's not like I said it was a Dingles(sp?) Giant or something like that. And no, of corse they didn't bother to lable them, why would they? The nersury buys random assortment, not breed specific so the things aren't labled as anything, we are talking NOTHING, empty pot except that it says full sun, distilled water only. It's just a lable to slap on. It's not like it's hard to ID VFTs, they don't all look alike because thats the whole point of making breeds, lol. Bigmouth is a trait, like denta or jaws (according to what I have read). What would you have me call my plant, large mouthed plant with long leaves and a kind of red center? If you know of a generic term for the plants I've always seen called Bigmouths then please share cause thats the most generic title I've seen. Seriously, I'm not trying to sound snooty or whatever, I'd just like an alternet term if you have one

    Acccording to the CP database, the reference for D. 'Big Mouth' is page 16 of Tony Camilleri's book, although it has never been registered officially.

    Certainly not D. 'Big Mouth". The decription in Camilleri's book, although very brief, says:

    "A comparison of a conventional sized trap and the 'big mouth' variety which produces large traps on very short leaves."

    'Big Mouth' is the name of a vft cultivar. It is not a general term for describing large vft varieties. I don't know if it is or not registered, but it is listed under the "Registered Cultivar Names" Here's the website

    If you have a large vft, you can refer to it as a "Giant variety", but not 'Big Mouth'. Since the place you got it from has different varieties, you probably did get a giant vft.

    Cool

    Dingly's Giant and Bigmouth are both cultivar names, aren't they? As is Akai-Ryu and Dente...

    Yes Parasuco they are cultivar names and just because the plant produces large traps that doesnt make it a bigmouth there are other traits of the bigmouth vft as well like dodecatheon pointed out
    I stole this pic from cooks (sorry Dean) to show the compactness of the plant.

    they dont always have to be red in the mouth either of course.
    What I believe you may have Darcie is just a older typical vft that produces large traps.
