    Identification on an unknown strain of VFT.

    Hey guys. I recently picked up my latest 7 venus flytraps from Safeway, and one of them looks different from the other six. Kind of hard to explain, but I've looked at referance photos of registered cultivars, and the closest match seems to be from Big Mouth, due to the thick base and few cilla. I'll post a few pics to clarify my point.
    First set is one of the typical ones I picked up, and the other set is of the unidentified curiosity.

    First set:







    And the second set...






    As a side note, does anyone think that they can tell me what the reason for the bundling growth is on the abnormal plant? See the pic below to clarify.


    Thanks for any and all help you guys can provide in advance!

    Hmm, looks to be a big-mouth to me - my bigmouth does that same thing with its sealed up traps (the cilia look like they are bending backwards on closed traps).
    As for the growth... that's... pretty crazy. I'v never seen a grouping of small traps like that in such a small area - very captivating, you lucky dog.

    odds are its not 'Big Mouth'.

    yeah, i figured they all kinda did that - but its got that red inside with a green outside, with long cilia, and seemingly large traps (although without a reference quarter, its hard to tell)

    ^ I have to agree, nice specimen. That little clump reminds me of a school of baby piranha!
