    How can you tell it is a cultivar? It doesn't have a distinctive color or teeth. The flytraps I bought at Home Depot and the 99 Cent store get just as colorful and big in a good year.

    Here's a Home Depot plant from last year:



    Here's the same Home Depot plant next to a 'B52' - this year was bad - weather, mealybugs, aphids - you name it.

    Here are some 99 Cent Store plants:


    The natural, historical range of Dionaea is a region around the North and South Carolina border. This species has been introduced and naturalized in California, Florida, England and Jamaica.

    quote from wikipedia ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venus_Flytrap )
    ''Although it has been successfully transplanted and grown in many locales around the world, it is found natively only in North and South Carolina in the United States, specifically within a 60 mile radius of Wilmington, North Carolina. [15] One such place is North Carolina's Green Swamp. There also appears to be a naturalized species of Venus Flytraps in northern Florida as well as populations in the New Jersey Pine Barrens.''

    it has been introduced by humans in florida...

    How can you tell it's a registered cultivar? Unless it was labeled when you purchased it, it's almost certainly a typical.

    Yep, good coloration and nice trap size isn't all that uncommon in typical Venus fly traps. I'd wager a lot of money that plant is just a typical and is not genetically identical to any registered cultivar.

    There are vft's in growing in Florida, I've personaly seen them there. It is an accepted fact that they were introduced. Some guy, I forgot his name, admitted to throwing seeds out in Florida.
