    Question on the 'Fondue' Cultivar

    Does this cultivar flower?
    Does it yield a high volume of seed, if so does the Progeny follow through.
    I can't find out much about leaf pull success rate on this cultivar.
    How many offshoots does in provide over a season?

    Thanks Noddy

    I think its a VFT.

    @Noddy:I don't see why the seed production or success rate on this particular cultivar as opposed to others.

    If this is the Dionaea cultivar you're talking about......why would you even want it ? Looks like something that should have been culled.

    Plants grown from seeds from a cultivar are *never* that same cultivar..they are no cultivar at all.
    (unless one of them is worthy to become a cultivar in the future..but if so, it will be a *different* cultivar than its parent)
    children are never identical to their parents..
    you can only reproduce a cultivar vegetatively..

    And I agree about it needing to be culled..
    If I owned that plant, I would destroy it before it had the chance to reproduce and weaken the VFT gene pool further..
    humans are really beginning to make hideously awful VFT mutants..its not a good thing IMO..
    If you want to own such a plant PLEASE dont let it reproduce!
    (but I know people will..to see if they can create something even worse..)

    I've seen my Dioneae look like that after severe Aphid damage. Very attractive "cultivar"! LOL

    just to clarify on the whole what makes a cultivar thing which has been discussed to death in many threads. Seedgrown plants from a particular cultivar can still be that cultivar as long as a few conditions are met, the first being that the original cultivar description allows for seed propagation as an acceptable form of propagation (this is rare, at least in the CP world), the second is that the resulting seedgrown progeny have the unique trait(s) described in the original cultivar description. Again this situation is rare and it does not typically apply to VFTs. Just wanted to clarify
