Hi all,

3 clones of really strange Dionaea from open pollination (2015)

Those are really strange plants. Keep us updated. I'd love to see what those plants look like closer to maturity, what their flowers will look like, and what offspring of those three might look like.

Where did you get those from, I wouldn't mind some proof that those are really Venus fly them traps. Needless to say, they look nothing like one.

Is it strange that I absolutely love this plant? "Rose" is awesome too - there was a really big one at the ICPS today that looked fascinating. As this form ("Diosera") seems to be forming a stem, I'd be interested to see how it looks in a few weeks/months - will it form a huge vine/stem like a nep or D.Chrysolepis?

Unclear statement. If all three plants were each grown from seed, then they are not "clones". Clarification?

Each is a separate clone because it is genetically unique....a plant does not have to been propagated in order to have a clonal designation.

I've seen people use the term that way before. When plants are called clones it doesn't necessarily mean that they are widely available clonal plants - it's just used to indicate that each plant, or clone, is genetically different. With just the pictures a viewer's first thought might be that all these plants came from the same tissue culture flask and are genetically identical.

Ah. Never have used it that way. I admit that I do tend to be more of a word "purist" -- especially with science related matters. By that standard, "clone" is only used for asexually reproduced organisms.

So he said it was crossed with an aloe? Is that even possible?!
