    Jimmy your never really going to get anywhere with your collection if you trade out everything as soon as you get it, plus im pretty sure 95% of us have as many flytraps as we want/need. not to say that people wont trade for one, but deathcube/TC mutations are pretty common now, and what you may be seeing as a mutation might simply be a side effect of being light starved and the plant might revert to normal growth as soon as it is placed into proper lighting....
    At any rate, not trying to rain on your parade, but i do think you need to start keeping your plants atleast for awhile to decide if you like them, etc.
    If you ever get heavy into the Nepenthes hobby, its pretty key to not trade or get rid of your plants as soon as you get them, A. because of unnecessary stress on the plant, and B. because you can never really appreciate the plants properly and gain experiance until you have them for awhile...

    These threads crack me up. Wow, it's hilarious to think it's so special when it comes from the same batch of TC'd plants.... Timmy if you were to actually give that plant a few months or even weeks in proper conditions, you'll see it's just like any other 'typical'!

    exactly petmantis, my point EXACTLY.

    very few of the mutations of these plants that come from TC are actually stable and most revert to a typical stage after being adjusted to appropriate conditions, many of the "mutations" out there in TC i wouldn't want to touch with a 10 foot pole anyhow lol since many of them are just unsightly, all be it unique and interesting, they are usually not relevant to my interest haha, doesn't mean they aren't to many others however...

    Timmy, i typoed your name, big deal. no need to get offended about it, i was voicing my opinion, along with others, you are trading your plants off as soon as you get them, it builds no experience for you.
