    Yes, it produces flowers.

    I can't answer this question for sure, but I did have two plants flower this spring. The flower stalks were thinner than the average flytrap so I suspect that they would not produce much seed. I cut them off and used them for tissue culture, so I don't know this for a fact. As for the sexually produced offspring being true-to-type, I don't know this either. I've been surprised at which traits seen in unusual flytraps seem to be easily inherited and which traits seem to be hard to pass along through sexual propagation. I might have a chance to produce some 'Fondue' seed next year and get some idea of what percentage, if any, of the offspring have the odd traps like the parent plant.

    It seems to divide fairly freely, and I'd suspect that it would be as easy to propagate via leaf pullings as any other flytrap.

    *gag* I must agree. I never was fond of those hideously melted flytraps out there.

    But if the plant meets specific criteria, it could be considered a cultivar. Or you could just label it as "Dionaea '(insert cultivar name here)' x self".
