    It is kool! It seems to be a fused tooth, saw tooth and white flytraps together. Good luck with it. Maybe it is a new cultivar. Congradulations

    I would suggest not changing labels on plants just because it resembles a particular clone. Where did you get it? What was it labelled as originally? Does every single trap look like that? How do they look when they are opened and mature?

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    I got it as a regular VFT from a nursery, little pot of horrors, every single trap is like this and when they open they all have at least 3 sets of teeth fused together like that

    Mutations are not that uncommon when your dealing with thousands of VFT produced for Nurserymans exchange, gublers etc.

    It will be interesting to see how it looks this Summer with a nice set of open traps.


    It does not match Fused Tooth or Sawtooth as I compare to the published descriptions. From the photo though it's hard to see what the teeth on one side look like because you can't discern which are on the lobe that is facing away vs the one facing us. Probably roughly fits the description for Dentate.
    "Both (this and [Dionaea ' Dente ' {D'Amato}]) are tissue-cultured mutations. The teeth are numerous, short and jagged, like a beartrap."
