VFT Variant Info
Lithops care info: If you take care of it, it will die.
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.
There is no item greater in value than life, for without life value would cease to exist.
My Grow List
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.

The "Bart Simpson" flower is very different. First, the petals are more lanceolate. And more significantly, the sigma is reduced or absent.
