    I would say just a red hint, but they are both the same. Veronis had a post about a green banding on the inside of a trap.

    Even though I told myself I wouldn't put up responding to this sort of thing....

    'Red Piranha' and 'Sawtooth' are both one-clone cultivars. It says on the descriptions that they can only be propagated by vegetative means, so that means that only that one clone is ever a 'Red Piranha' or a 'Sawtooth'. Even if you found a plant with such similarity, or even being identical, you couldn't call it that cultivar unless you know for a fact it is.

    Timmy - as youve seen i can be nice to you, and while you think i hate you, i dont, i think your rude, yes.
    ok, so your posts here, when it comes to identification, leave it to the people with experience please?
    your too new to this hobby to fully go out and give out information for IDs which is 9 times out 10 so far, incorrect, these mistaken IDs given by novice growers are why we have so many mislabeled plants in cultivation now, and mislabeled plants leads to people feeling ripped off in trades or purchases, or even in personal collections if its not what they paid for.
    So again, not to bark at you or anything, but leave the identification the VFT experts (which i myself am not, by any means) i feel your "VFT" identification thread, while it could be useful, is more of a problem than it is good. people will try and brand a plant a certain cultivar, when it is NOT that cultivar...
    as Clue stated
    Several of the cultivars in cultivation, can only be propagated through vegetative means, not through seed or any of the sort. TC, pullings, divisions, etc only.

    Dont label the plant as unknown, because it most likely is not a cultivar,
    label the plant as Dionaea muscipula and leave it at that, if you feel it produces a constant set of traits unique to the plant, if you feel it necessary, try and find out a way to register it as your own cultivar.

    OK people.. first at all is not necesary to argue with bad wave energy.... You (we) can have different opinions sure, but is not big deal...

    I understand your point guys, THIS IS NOT A CULTIVAR because its a clon yes, but her "mather clon" was taken from seed... is spite of that, all clons of that plants looks the same...
    I will make leaf-cuttings and show you pictures of them.. they will be equal to this...
    Thanks for your help!

    When i make that post i will send you mp to all of you who are interested in this case... best regards!

    Not to burst you bubble, but I think I have the same clone as you do.

    Not all of the traps appear to have the green banding on your plant, while all of feder's appear to have a distinct, even banding off of the red coloration. It kind of looks like yours just has some occasional green on some of the mostly red traps.

    I'll have to wait for the plant to produce decent traps again.
