    Yeah, that would be an interesting experiment. Though, just about any part of a Venus fly trap can turn into plantlets. I guess if it happened quicker on that section it would be indicative of something.

    Been thinking about this NaN. I usually try to do some history and research on the origins of clones and write it up. Where did you gain this knowledge of the plant? Do you know where it originated and who might be the first official grower of the plant?

    mmlr38, Put me down for one! I am new here, so excuse my ignorance, but how would we be able to buy one of those from you in the future? Also, would it be possible to post pics of those cultivars you spoke of above? I have never heard of them or are able to find them online.
    Thanks!

    Ok, this is seriously an amazingly freakish plant...even for cps...I love it

    Not a plant person so I wonder since I've never played around with making mutants in plants...The use of phytohormones in mutagenesis, that is a stable effect in the cultivar? I'm assuming yes and not just some wacky thing like what people see in tissue cultured plants but which they lose after a while? Just was wondering what the mode of action phytohormones have in DNA alteration. Going to google now but thought maybe someone here would know details...

    I wish I owned this plant..so I could destroy it.
    and never allow it weaken the gene pool.
    but it seems its too late for that.

    (yes I know..if its only vegetatively propagated then its not a big deal..but you know someone will try to let it flower and cross pollinate it with other VFT's)

    I really hate these kinds of VFT's..what a travesty.
    worse than the parrot cichlid.

    I must agree with scot... I just can't admire something like that.
