    Hey guys,

    I may not know alot about it but these plant have a deep bloody red color inside the trap along with the teeth. And on the outside, it have a red band under the lip of the trap. From what i saw some big mouth pic it have a red band just like this one.

    There are plenty of plants that appear to look like Big Mouth - after all it just happens to have bright red big traps and grow in a tight clumping rosette. Unless the plant is a labelled though, you cannot just call it Big Mouth because it happens to look a bit like one. The plant originates from Triffid Park, so it's unlikely a DIY store in the US will be selling it, especially unlabelled.

    Dentate/dente can apply to any shark toothed cultivar according to the ICPS, so it safe to call any such plant Dentate, even if they aren't genetically identical. I don't make the rules up!

    I agree of what you said. Without a lable then we can never be for sure it is a big mouth but it doesn't mean that it cannot be a big mouth either. I should have said, the store have VFT that look like the "Big Mouth" in a lot of ways but it may not be.

    Here is a picture of 'Big Mouth' from Triffid Park. These were from last Spring after settling in and putting out new growth. Not all the traps were fully colored up yet. I also grow in about 50% shade on that side of the greenhouse. Not sure just how big they will get. These were nice size bulbs a few years old but capable of getting larger. They remained very compact and squat with wide leaves all Summer long.


    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    This picture is the plants from the store that Jeff is talking about. These were the 2 healthiest plants they had in stock. This store also has a small selection of tiny Nepenthes and a whole box full of some unidentified Drosera (I think they are D intermedia or spatulata.. some sort of rosetted spoonleaf plant) and also a few D. adelae plants.

    Cheers

    At what point can a grower decide to name their own variation? What if you have a plant that's identical to an existant line, but not from that line? Do you still call it a "Typical" or should you call it an "ES-1 (Typical with dark red interiors, and red line on exterior of trap a la "Big Mouth")"?
