    Tony,

    What are the main characteristics of the 'sharks teeth' variety?
    Here in the UK there is a form called sharks tooth. I grow it but it never produces red traps, just pinkish coloured ones.
    The leaves prior to flowering are normal everyday type leaves with long trap hairs. After flowering they start to grow dentate, maybe a little longer than the typical dentate forms.

    Ya. REALLY good job. You should see how Isent them to him. I sandwiched them all between two slabs of LFS... Then. I wrapped them in a bag, and stuffed them into a box.

    It was my first CP shipping experience. I do better now. Heh. heh...

    Much better pics Joel!

    I would say it is pretty clear there that one is a dente of some sort. While the other looks common.

    Richard, My Sharks Teeth came from Triffid Park. They do seem to put up both more normal looking traps and traps with the triangular teeth. I have not had them long enough to see a pattern as you suggest with your Sharks Tooth. The picture is from some plants that came in early spring and are not producing summer leaves as they are a little off cycle. A couple plants I got last fall and overwintered are showing upright summer leaves.

    Perhaps they are the same and someone turned teeth to tooth or viceversa.. Although that doesn't explain the color.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    My Shark's Tooth grows long, vertical petioles all year long, with larger traps in the summer. The teeth do become shorter the more sun they have. The inner traps also turn only slightly pink.
    Dente's grow large traps on very short leaves in the spring, becoming longer in the summer when the Dente characteristic comes through more. They can also have bright red inner traps and red teeth.
    Tony's does actually look more like a Dente, mine doesn't grow like that.
