    Selective breeding ? This was about tissue cultured mutations............... which you attempted to relate to selectively breeding dogs. I honestly can't even imagine how you could even equate the two things. Now, if someone were to stick a black lab into a jar of chemicals and come out with a bunch of 6 legged, headless clones that people were gaga over and willing to pay obscene amounts of money to own, then maybe I could see your argument.

    Headless dogs you say? That would certainly cut down on unwanted barking. And the food bill. And the need for walking.
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    Indeed. But would you want to own one ?

    Considering what I think are the basic requirements for a dog to earn his food, not barking before biting wouldn't necessarily be a deal breaker, but the not biting just wouldn't do!

    I normally try to stay out of stuff like this but I think you guys are missing Dexenthes point. Yea tissue culture and selective breeding are two very different things, but someone chose to keep those cultivars alive after the tissue culture process. That's just as much selection as someone selecting a certain dog because you like a certain trait. The methods before selection are different but in the end it's still selection. I also don't see why you felt the need to attack these varieties of flytraps in the first place. Yea you guys may not like them but OP was simply asking which flytrap cultivars and varieties can't close their traps effectivly enough to feed. A simple "these types can't close or use their traps effectively...etc" would've been fine. But, you had to start listing off how much you despise these flytraps, which in my experience is going to promote an ill tempered debate and backlash. Personally I enjoy the weird deformed clones, but that's my opinion. I think everyone on this forum needs to exibit a little bit more caution when listing personal opinions. I lurk quite a bit and notice that opinions tend to be stated very degradingly towards opposing opinions... I understand that it's constructive to hear everyone's opinion but before you post think about how you sound and if what you're saying really even relates to the original post...

    I guess the main reason I see no problem whatsoever with insulting plants mercilessly is because it won't hurt their feelings. I accept no responsibility for anyone elses.
