    i saw this picture while i was surfing it looks like a cross tooth but then again it looks like a cup trap at the same time. I wish i could get one of these...
    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    That is my photo, thanks! It is a neat little plant, but a finicky subject in cultivation. I am currently down to one plant. I don't believe this is a hybrid between to two forms you named though, just a typical mutant form.

    Is it a cuptrap? It looks more like a cross tooth or some type of fused tooth due to the weird leaves. Since the leaves are so narrow Tony advice was to give it as much light as possible, and so far it is working pretty well with my VFT's that look simular to yours.

    I just call it a typical cup trap. The crossed teeth are very variable, sometimes they happen and sometimes not, I grow mine outdoors so they get all the light there is to be had, but still the plant is a weak subject. I suggest that you take some leaf cuttings since rapid decline is always a possibility with this particular variation.

    It doensn't really look like a Cup trap since the teeth are fused together, maybe it is a new cultivar?...

    Hmmm, I suppose that is a valid option provided I can find a way to reproduce it in quantity. I have mixed feelings about naming and registering the various VFT forms which I grow. For me to consider this it would have to have some rather outstanding character. My next publication will likely be Dionaea "Todd's Terror" which is a knockout VFT!

    The plant came from our own Ozzy. It was sort of how we met. It has a very distinct look I think, and the traps have an almost plastic look to them.
