    yes. In fact, I already have images of most, although they are not my own at this time. I plan to do botanical watercolors for them all eventually, but that will take a while (oviously)

    ...wanders off to do a little more work on the cultivar pages of new vft superguide webpage

    I've recently completed a webpage listing the significant mutant flytraps. In addition, I've included a short description and discussion of each form. Many of the forms are cultivars but, some are still informally named. Soon, I intend to formally register all those lacking, unless someone beats me to it. This list is quite complete of the "noteworthy" forms/mutations. Although, someone recently informed me of another form that I neglected.
    Plants like most of Dingley's forms are variants of "typical" flytraps and I haven't made specific distinctions. As for the "giant" forms, I haven't made a separate distinction for each one either. Unless they get formally named, these don't need specific distinction( in my opinion). They are all variants of the "typical" form.

    Thumbs up

    Thanks Stefan for that page, there is so much great information there, very interesting reading. It was good to learn where all the variations came from.

    Don't forget, befor we register these plants, we should really know how they flower. The flower is a big place for mutation and if a varent is registerd without it's flower type being noted their could be conflicts later.

    That is an interesting point, Darcie. However, most of the VFT variants are based on the morphology of the trap or sometimes petiole. I am not aware of any described changes in VFT flower morphology. Now a red, yellow, or blue flowered VFT would be a find. Perhaps a red-white-and-blue flowered variety could be called Dubya-flag-waver or pox-Americana.

    Unless specifically noted in the description of the cultivar, descriptions of characteristics that are consistent with the "typical" form don't need to be repeated. To my knowledge, I can only think of one "variant" flower amongst the mentioned mutant flytraps.
