I admit to not having a decent guess as to which cultivar it is but congrats none the less. It would seem to be one of the short-toothed forms. Would you care to say? Springtime brings me into thoughts of Dionaea as well.

So, it looks like a nice cultivar. Fully functional, in terms of its traps?

No idea. But I'm hoping so- I know mature 'alien' cultivars have problems with that. Most likely the traps will split or tear during the digestive phase, if the leaves are as thick as I think they are.

I have an "alien" vft clone and the traps close fine, I hope when matured, there wont be any issue with the trapping mechanism.
