    What kind of VFT is this?

    Yesterday, I went to a plant festival not too far from my house. They had carnivorous plants for sale and I got myself a couple, including this Venus Fly Trap. I can tell it's a cultivar, but not sure what kind (B52, Low Giant, Red Rosetted, etc). The guy selling it said that he doesn't know what kind it is and it's rosetted all the time.

    Any idea?

    Well. I want to say 'Low Giant'. But. With no label or anything, there's almost no way to tell and it may not even be a cultivar. So I would just label it as a typical. Besides, my VFT stayed rosetted this whole year as well, and I got it from Wal-Mart.

    Yeah that could easily be a typical, they vary GREATLY from plant to plant when seed-grown.

    while it resembles my low giant plants, i would never (and this is in my opinion) feel comfortable naming something a cultivar unless i knew exactly what it was (meaning came from a source, and was a cloned cultivar, unless it is transferable through seed).
    So like a couple others have said, its best to keep it as a typical.
    If the trait of low, ground hugging traps continues, and traps are decent sized, it may very well fit the cultivar description of low giant.

    Kayota, plants are easily dug up in the carolinas and probably driven down to florida if that were the case...
