Identification on an unknown strain of VFT.

  • #21
If your plant fits the registered description for 'Big Mouth', then its a Big Mouth.
Here is what the CP Database says about 'Big Mouth'.
------------
N: $[Dionaea ' Big Mouth ' {T.Camilleri}]
P: Carniv.Pl.:16 (1998)
S: =[Dionaea muscipula {Soland. ex Ellis}]
HC: name not registered with IRA, description insufficient
B: ?, before 1998
Nominant: T.Camilleri, 1998
Description: Carniv.Pl.:16

"A comparison of a conventional sized trap and the [Dionaea ' Big Mouth ' {T.Camilleri}] variety (sic!) which produces large traps on very short leaves."
------------

Unfortunately, I have not seen the original article [Carniv.Pl.:16 (1998)] that describes the plant, but if the quote from the database is complete, then virtually any VFT with "large traps on very short leaves" would fit the description -- whether green, red, or blue.

Anybody knows if "wild Interiors" vft are authentic cultivars. I bought 2 from Walmart this one look like an sd kronos. Can anyone help me identify this cultivars. The brand just says whatever is available at the time. No name on containers. Also has spikes on lower leaf (petiole).

You could guess, based on researching cultivar descriptions and such but without the source verifying what you have you'll never be able to positively i.d. your plant. In effect, your plant was sold as a "typical" form, even if it came from actual cultivar stock.

There is Big Mouth and a sarrcenia hybrid called Mega Mouth. But I'd say it's extremely unlikely for any of the mass market sellers to go through the trouble of procuring specific cultivars and not even retain their label. Any large or colorful flytraps that come out of this are just typicals expressing good genetics

I received this from a private owner with a little shop at a farmers market, lucky bamboo 4u. She had b52, dente, and mag or mega months vft for sale. I just have to ask when I go back and get labels from her. I got the magmouth/? And a dente from her.

Found out this is a mammoth fly trap. I got ahold of the grower. Thank you again
