    I would go with leaf cuttings or buying seeds if you wanted more plants. I am curious aside from getting seeds is there anything else that could be good for the plant?

    So if i have a royal red flytrap lets say, and i let it flower,produce seeds and then plant them, then when they sprout they will be exactly like the wild flytraps? Because i really want a wild flytrap variety- what are the wild flytrap varieties called? Common flytraps? Cause i don't know why but i belive that they would be stronger than the mutated one.

    Well it would be hard to say exactly how the plants would turn out. I would expect they would in general have more color than the typical variety. Also as a general rule in plant breeding.. selfing a plant usually results in offspring being less vigorous than the parent plant.

    oops Selfing is when you self pollinate a plant. Yes as a general rule the resulting offspring are weaker than the parent plant. There are always occasional exceptions though. But this is why it's best to try and cross pollinate plants whenever possible.
