    Ok couple things..

    Monkeyman never said they were labelled and I highly doubt they were.. So using names like bigmouth, fused tooth is not acceptable. You could say they are similar to such and such variety but not use apply the names directly. Darcie is correct in saying southwest giant and slacks giant like.

    Also it is not true that all registered varieties are easy to tell apart. And for unregistered ones it is not ok in my book to call any plant by any of those names. They are labelled for a reason. Registered or not has nothing to do it. They are labelled to keep the origin of a specific plant intact.[/QUOTE]
    Oh, yay, I don't know what Monkeyman saw, although fused tooth is sort of distinctive. I don't like people randomly labling plants either, but it does happen, proticularly with the names "giant" and "Blood Red Trap".

    As to registerd varients, what ones do you refer to? The Denta trap group is a little hard to tell, but they have all been lumped into being consitterd the same varient now anyways.

    I guess I just don't like how the other plant groups get to be IDed according to traits and just because a lot of VFT's are growing through cloning, they aren't.

    Alot of the large trap types are hard to tell apart as well as those that are color variations. Cultural practices will greatly affect coloration so are highly subjective to ones own results based on their own growing environment.

    Yes those with physical mutations are easier to spot and distinguish but here again it is not always so clear cut because a typical VFT can sometimes form a mutated trap or two (very common actually) because of damage or environment. It wouldn't surprise me to find a plant with a fused tooth trap or two. Particularly in a homedepot where the plants are coming from heavily micropropagated stock and have been through alot of stress. These things tend not to be stable and the plant will grow normally the great majority of the time when healthy.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Oh yah, never ID any plant of any kind untill it is settled in. If you can't discribe a plant in compleat don't try and give it a name, lol. It's sort of like buying a White Betta fish and calling it white befor you've had it long enough for it's real color to show up.

    I got the plants from cooks . it was labeled promo but he said it was called red variety which i already knew because I saw them for sale at my local nursery . the vftslooks like any ordinary vft except it is also red on the outside of the and on the rims of the leaves . I can't show you a pic cuz I still don't know how and if I did you would'nt be able to see the plant truly because it is still young . although I have found to books with pics of the plant i have : carnivorous plants by tony camilleri pg14 , carnivorous plants of the united states and canada second edition by donald e. schnell pg.86 , also on pg97 , has anybody ever seen a vft like that b 4 .
