    Hey guys,
    I went to this place yesterday and found that they have few big mouths. For those of who live in San Jose CA that want to get a big mouth, pm me for location.

    Does the VFT actually say it is a 'Big Mouth'?
    I doubt that Walmart would carry a registered cultivator.

    I hope that if you buy one there, you do not pass it off as a 'Big Mouth'.

    It's obvious, just look at them. Walmart gets Big mouth, dentate, and typical.

    You telling me that the dentate I got there is NOT a dentate because I bought it at Walmart? Give me a break.

    Maybe I missed something but I don't see anyone saying your dentate form is not a dentate. Dentate is easy to spot and determine. Can you honestly say though that your supposed big mouth from walmart matches the original plant and hence could be called by that name? It is generally an unwise plan to assign labels to plants of uncertain origin except in a few cases when it is very clear on specific traits such as dentate teeth. VFT are particularly troublesome because culture, age, and time of the year can make a large difference in the plant's visible characteristics.

    Trap size alone does not qualify it for the 'Big Mouth' cultivar label. There are many large trap forms, even without considering that a well grown plain ole VFT will easily have traps over an inch.

    Post some pics of mature plants in Summer growth and lets have a look!

    A lot of new growers tend to name vft's names, including me when I first grew vft's. How do you know the plants bought at walmart are bigmouth? Trap size doesn't really matter. About 90% of all my typicals will make 1" traps or bigger easily, so does this qualify it as a bigmouth... no. Please try to avoid assuming a vft is this or that because it makes it hard for collectors to collect the authentic plant as many of the vfts now in circulation are not the true plants. A good example is a Red Dragon.
