    Dionaea 'Alien', D. 'Coquillage', D. 'Mirror', D. 'Microdent', FTS Freak & FTS Yellow

    A few shots of some rare clones and some FTS clones that I hope to get in tissue culture this year.

    First we have
    Dionaea 'Coquillage' (two baby plants):



    Dionaea 'Mirror':

    Closeup on the little side growth (sorry for the blurriness...I didn't use my good camera or a tripod)


    Dionaea 'Alien':


    Dionaea 'Microdent':


    And now onto a couple of interesting ************ clones not yet in propagation. Both of these are from the 2008 FlytrapRanch seed mix.
    FTS Freak:
    I should have taken photos of this guy during the growing season because it's hard to tell what it looks like when dormant, but the leaves and traps curl in on themselves and the cilia (teeth) on the traps are poorly formed.



    FTS Yellow:
    There are other clones out there called "Yellow" but in the photos I've seen of them, they don't look very yellow. This plant is banana yellow, a very odd color for a flytrap...I think

    Alongside a red and a green flytrap for color comparison:




    Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed the photos

    Wow. That is yellow! Nice. I think I will have to get some different flytraps this year. I have been neglecting that part of my collection.

    Very fascinating new VFT cultivars and a few clones with potential to become more fascinating new VFT cultivars. That yellow clone certainly looks quite intriguing.

    I love the Dionaea 'Alien" cultivar. I think it really does look like one of the aliens too.

    I got a yellow late last year, so not really sure how yellow it's gone to be but it did not seem to be that yellow!
    Yours is certainly a nice yellow color!

    Yeah, you definitely should! There are many, many more flytraps available in the US now. When I first started growing them, there were only a handful of clones available. I was very jealous of how many were available in the EU. But we're catching them now

    Yeah, this is the most yellow flytrap I've ever seen. There are some other clones out there named "yellow" but they don't look yellow to me.

    Yeah, Dionaea 'Alien' is a very cool clone. I look forward to seeing it grow this summer. It will be my first summer with it.

    Yeah, I've seen photos of other yellow flytraps and they certainly don't look all that yellow to me. This one is very yellow...like a banana
