    And many are in reality unremarkable and are indistinguishable from others unless labeled.

Some are getting near adult size now and I should have one that's fairly large this year and should know more about the variety's characteristics, provided I can find them.

    Do you happen to have any pictures of them?

    No, unfortunately I haven't taken any photos of them yet. Maybe later this summer when they look nicer.

    When I saw the thread title, I said to myself - I used to grow a plant by that name. When I read that mmlr38 said that he received his from Bob Z -- & I wondered -- hmmm - I think I sent him a bunch of plants way back when. So I wandered over to Bob's growlist & sure enough, this plant is listed as being from me.

    I received this plant (& several others) from Charles Brewer. I'm not certain whether I still grow it but I do recall that, in my conditions, several other varieties had both larger & deeper-red traps than this clone. You may be able to get more details directly from Charles ...
    All the best,

    Thank you. My point exactly...No offence intended in my orriginal post. Its just to say that if you are very general and non-specific in your request for information, you'll get pretty non-specific and meaningless information in return. That's just a fact. It's courteous to help others understand what information you actually want, otherwise we just have to guess (which isn't fun).
    Anyway, no worries. Point made.
    Carry on

    Oh well that is exciting that the plants came from you.

    Thanks for the bit of history Ron. I haven't been overly impressed with the small plants I have (granted, they're still quite small and young Dionaea can look quite different than they will when they mature), which is probably why I'm not even sure where they are right now...
