Dionaea 'A2' Bailey & McPherson, Dionaea:156 (2013)
| CP Photofinder  

Cultivar: Dionaea 'A2' H.v.Schmeling
Publication: Bailey & McPherson, Dionaea:156 (2013)
Synonym: =Dionaea muscipula Soland. ex Ellis
Originator: H.v.Schmeling/M.Miller, US, early 2000s
Nominant: H.v.Schmeling/M.Miller
Registrant: H.v.Schmeling/M.Miller, 07.05.2013
Horicultural comment: Registered 15. 5. 2013 {JS}
Standard: Bailey & McPherson, Dionaea:157, Figs. 109 & 110 (2013)
Etymology: originator's serial number
Description: Bailey & McPherson, Dionaea:156 (2013)
"Dionaea ' A2 ' H.v.Schmeling is a sibling plant of the celebrated cultivar, Dionaea ' B52 ' B.Rice, which produces some of the largest traps of all flytraps. Created and propagated by Henning von Schmeling in the early 2000s, Dionaea ' A2 ' H.v.Schmeling is one of seven seedlings resulting from the self-pollination of a Venus's flytrap cultivar that Henning nicknamed "Carolina Giant". The seven seedlings were originally named "A1", "A2", "A3", etc., in order of descending size, with "A1" being the largest plant and later renamed to Dionaea ' B52 ' B.Rice after the large American bomber aeroplane. Dionaea ' A2 ' H.v.Schmeling is a Venus's flytrap variety that is highly sought after by collectors. Dionaea ' A2 ' H.v.Schmeling is now in wide distribution in the United States after being tissue cultured in 2010 by Matt Miller and distributed through his nursery FlytrapStore.
The traps of Dionaea ' A2 ' H.v.Schmeling are up to 5.5 cm long, and among the largest of all Dionaea Soland. ex Ellis cultivars. It is predominantly a low-growing cultivar and produces decumbent leaves and traps throughout the year. It produces large quantities of seed (notably more than the cultivar Dionaea ' B52 ' B.Rice).
During late summer and autumn, the large traps of Dionaea ' A2 ' H.v.Schmeling develop deep red colouration across their inner surfaces when exposed to strong sunlight. The red colouration develops more readily than in Dionaea ' B52 ' B.Rice."

| CP Photofinder  

Cultivar: Dionaea 'Adentate' C.Paul
Publication: Bailey & McPherson, Dionaea:159 (2013)
Synonym: =Dionaea muscipula Soland. ex Ellis
Originator: C.Paul, DE, 2010
Nominant: C.Paul
Registrant: C.Paul, 15.05.2013
Horicultural comment: Registered 15. 5. 2013 {JS}
Standard: Bailey & McPherson, Dionaea:158 & 159, Figs. 111 & 112 (2013)
Propagation: leaf or rhizome cuttings
Etymology: after Greek "a-" (non) and Latin "dentatus" (toothed) for missing of marginal lashes
Description: Bailey & McPherson, Dionaea:159 (2013)
"The traps can be up to 3 cm long and have an exceptionally wide aperture. The outer rim of each lobe is thickened, but the marginal lashes are either very short and reduced to bumps or, on some traps, completely absent altogether. In summer, Dionaea ' Adentate ' C.Paul produces erect leaves up to 5 cm long bearing very narrow leaf bases and petioles.
When cultivated in strong sunlight, the interior of the traps of Dionaea ' Adentate ' C.Paul and the rudimentary marginal lashes develop blood red colouration, while the exterior surfaces of the lobes are yellowish orange or may suffuse reddish. The leaf bases may also turn reddish close to the rhizome. This cultivar can be propagated easily through leaf or rhizome cuttings."

Description: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.25:50 (1996)
"Growth habit and flower morphology are typical for this species. The leaf petiole, blade and trap exhibit dark maroon to burgundy coloration. Any green coloration has only been noted around the center of the plant in mid-winter. The entire trap, interior and exterior, exhibits dark burgundy coloration throughout the year. Grown under laboratory conditions, where nutrient levels can be comparatively high, the plants still exhibit partial burgundy coloration in the traps and leaf blade."
Dionaea 'Alien' Carniv.Pl.Newslett.39:119 (2010)

Propagation: vegetative
Etymology: after movie title
Description: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.39:119 (2010)
"The most spectacular feature of this new cultivar is the extremely arched shape of all of the traps, which are 4 to 5 cm on mature plants. They made me think of the head of an alien from Ridley Scott's well-known 1979 movie 'Alien'. Dionaea muscipula ' Alien ' G.Bily also produces strange teeth that are a little shorter than typical Dionaea Soland. ex Ellis and have small wings all along the tooth. Mature traps are also fused at the distal end and base lobes of traps overlap. Traps do not close well because the lobes of the traps are very heavy, reminding me of a Heliamphora Benth. pitcher, and when you try to close it with your fingers it often breaks. Each trap produces many tiny trigger hairs."

Propagation: leaf cuttings
Etymology: after originator's nursery and serial number
Description: Bailey & McPherson, Dionaea:174 (2013)
"Dionaea ' BCP clone X11 ' K.Pasek produces upright foliage as soon as growth commences in early spring, and it continues to produce erect leaves throughout the growing season until dormancy. Short, triangular marginal lashes line the outer edges of the lobes of the traps. The traps of Dionaea ' BCP clone X11 ' K.Pasek typically have only two trigger hairs per lobe, instead of the three that is typical for Dionaea Soland. ex Ellis. The absence of one trigger hair has no apparent effect on the functionality of the traps.
The interior surfaces of the trap lobes develop orange or bright red colouration in specimens grown exposed to direct sunlight, especially late in the season. All other parts are yellowish green. The foliage of this cultivar is in line with wild type Dionaea Soland. ex Ellis, In all other respects, including size. It produces abundant viable seed, and can be propagated easily by leaf cuttings."

Propagation: leaf cuttings and division of offshoots
Etymology: after trap morphology
Description: Bailey & McPherson, Dionaea:177 (2013)
"Dionaea ' Big Mouth ' C.Clayton produces decumbent foliage throughout the growing season, and starts to develop leaves early in spring. The traps are up to 4.5 cm long, and are borne on proportionately very short leaf bases. Usually the leaf bases are approximately the same length as the traps, which is in contrast to typical wild type Dionaea Soland. ex Ellis in which the leaf bases are usually approximately twice as long as the traps. The marginal lashes and interior surfaces of the trap lobes develop vivid, deep red to purple colouration. The exterior surfaces of the lobes are yellow or organish, often with a red line below the marginal lashes. Dionaea ' Big Mouth ' C.Clayton is slow to establish as it generally produces copious offshoots, but forms established specimens after two years of growth. It produces abundent pollen, and large quantities of fertile seed, and can be propagated easily by leaf cuttings and division of offshoots."

"The leaves of Dionaea ' Bimbo ' E.Koenig are among the largest of all Dionaea Soland. ex Ellis cultivars. The traps are up to 5 cm long borne on leaf bases that may be 10 cm in length. The traps are curved along the midrib and close very rapidly in specimens grown exposed to direct sunlight. In addition to its impressive size, Dionaea ' Bimbo ' E.Koenig exhibits remarkable colouration. The inner surfaces of the trap lobes develop deep red colouration, often with an unusual purple sheen. The marginal lashes may be white, red or purple, while the exterior of the traps and all other parts of the foliage appear entirely yellowish green. Parts of the rhizome may be reddish. Dionaea ' Bimbo ' E.Koenig is a vigorous and fast growing cultivar. It produces fully erect leaves during summer and can be propagated easily by rhizome division and leaf cuttings."

Propagation: rhizome division or leaf cuttings
Etymology: after unsettling appearance
Description: Bailey & McPherson, Dionaea:182 (2013)
"Dionaea ' Biohazard ' C.Klein produces leaves that are up to 8 cm long. The summer foliage is mainly erect, while leaves produced in spring and autumn are decumbent. Most leaves display greatly deformed trap lobes. The margins of the lobes are variably bent and often undulate. The lobes are fringed with marginal lashes of different lengths, some of which are partially fused, and the traps possess many trigger hairs, but usually are unable to close properly. When exposed to direct sunlight, the traps of Dionaea ' Biohazard ' C.Klein develop variable red colouration across the inner surfaces of the trap lobes. The margin of the lobes usually stay green and the lashes are often whitish. The mutated characteristics are not very stable as specimens may sporadically lose their distinctive trap morphology and produce typical leaves. Offspring grown from seed consistently fail to inherit the mutated trap structure, and consequently, propagation must be achieved through rhizome division or leaf cuttings."

Description: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.41:116 (2012)
"Dionaea muscipula 'Blanche Hermine' G.Bily is a white sport from a variegated Venus Flytrap that I found in May 2008 at the Carniflora open day. In September, I was able to take a bulb cutting. The mother plant died from frost during winter 2008/2009.
A small very white plant started to grow from this bulb cutting. I thought that this white plant would die once the reserves of the cutting were exhausted. To see this plant resuming growth in spring 2009 was quite a big surprise for me! The plant must certainly still have had some chlorophyll traces in its leaf, hardly visible in the white leaf tissue (see Fig. 1). Dionaea muscipula 'Blanche Hermine' G.Bily is quite a slow grower because of the deficiency of chlorophyll, but it is possible to do leaf and bulb cuttings to maintain the unique features of this plant."

Description: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.36:68 (2007)
"This plant was obtained from an F2 cross between an all red clone Dionaea ' Royal Red ' AUPBR 464 and a more typically colored Dionaea ' Sawtooth ' B.Rice plant in 2000. It does not demonstrate any new mutation in general leaf form, but it does have new attributes which distinguish it from other, previously existing Dionaea Soland. ex Ellis cultivars. Establishing this plant name as a new cultivar will help keep proper order in the wide assortment of Dionaea muscipula Soland. ex Ellis cultivars already registered.
This new cultivar differs in its growth from other Dionaea Soland. ex Ellis cultivars in the following ways:
1)All-red coloration of plants, similar to Dionaea ' Akai Ryu ' R.Gagliardo. 2)Marginal trichomes are reduced and divided to numerous toothlets similar to Dionaea ' Sawtooth ' B.Rice. Note that the trichomes on Dionaea ' Red Piranha ' E.Read are dentate, but not sawtooth. 3)Adult plants are about 4-6 cm in diameter, only about half the size of most Dionaea Soland. ex Ellis (including Dionaea ' Sawtooth ' B.Rice). 4)Enormous proliferation. One individual is able to produce 10-30 or more offshoots during a single growth season."

Propagation: division
Etymology: after irregular growth of marginal lashes of traps
Description: Bailey & McPherson, Dionaea:188 (2013)
"Dionaea ' Bristle Tooth ' C.Clayton produces leaves up to 7 cm in length bearing traps up to 2.5 cm long, although traps up to 3.5 mm long may occasionally be produced. In addition to its distinctive marginal lashes, Dionaea ' Bristle Tooth ' C.Clayton is noteworthy for it bears thick, bristly trigger hairs. The leaves are bright yellowish green, with deep red colouration present across the inner surfaces of the traps' lobes. If exposed to very strong sunlight, the insides of the traps may turn dark purple. Most leaves produced during the growing season are decumbent, although occasional erect leaves may develop in small numbers during spring and summer months. It produces unusually large leaves early in the growing season. Similar to many Dionaea Soland. ex Ellis cultivars with short marginal lashes, Dionaea ' Bristle Tooth ' C.Clayton produces abundant offshoots which enable rapid propagation by division."

"The marginal teeth are fused in a few groupings, and some of them can be crossed (Fig. 2). The first traps of the growing season may have 3 trigger hairs per lobe, but eventually producing 4-5 functional trigger hairs per lobe; a total of 8-10 for each trap.
The most similar cultivar is probably Dionaea ' Triton ' M.Maier, but this can be distinguished easily by its fused distal ends of the traps. Dionaea ' Carniplant ' G.Gutierrez differs from Dionaea ' JA1 ' J.A.Gonzalez Dominguez in the number of trigger hairs (6 in Dionaea ' JA1 ' J.A.Gonzalez Dominguez and 8-10 in Dionaea ' Carniplant ' G.Gutierrez) and trap color when grown in direct sunlight (Dionaea ' JA1 ' J.A.Gonzalez Dominguez is mostly green and Dionaea ' Carniplant ' G.Gutierrez turns red). The plant also differs from Dionaea ' Fused Tooth ' D'Amato in that in Dionaea ' Carniplant ' G.Gutierrez, not all of the marginal teeth are fused (Fig. 2), has larger petioles, and a higher number of trigger hairs per lobe."

Propagation: vegetative
Etymology: after fuzzy traps reminiscent of pom poms used by cheerleaders
Description: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.42:150 (2013)
"During the late summer/fall, one of the specimens began to grow much larger and faster than the others. As it grew, I noticed the successively emerging traps were losing the fuzzy appearance, and eventually newly emerging traps began to look "normal", with smooth outer lobes and long protruding teeth on the outer margins. Eventually, the entire plant was producing "normal" looking leaf traps.
In late April 2012, this larger specimen with normal looking traps had developed additional offshoots with the distinctive "fuzzy" traps (Fig. 7). This is the typical growth behavior of Dionaea ' Cheerleader ' D.Conner - that is, fuzzy traps appear each spring as the plant emerges from dormancy and new offshoots develop. These fuzzy traps do not grow into normal traps, but eventually die, while, as the season progresses, additional newly emerging traps grow into normal traps. This leads me to believe that the genes responsible for the "fuzzy" traps are present and for some reason get "switched off" when the plant reaches a certain size, age, or stage of development, but can be re-activated in new young offshoots, divisions, leaf pullings, or in young plantlets propagated through tissue culture. The annual recurrent pattern of fuzzy traps in mature plants of this cultivar has been replicated by several growers.
The flower appears to be normally formed (Fig. 9).
Plants with fuzzy traps have commonly been discussed since at least 2001 using local names such as "PomPom", "Hedgehog", or "Scrub Brush", but the fuzzy traps on these plants have been reported to eventually give way to plants with normal traps. Further, I am not aware of any publications reporting that fuzzy traps reappear in subsequent years as the plants emerge from dormancy or produce offshoots."

"This plant is an all red flytrap which I have named Dionaea ' Clayton's Red Sunset ' C.Clayton. It regularly grows up to 25 cm (10 inches) across, although extremely slowly, and is one of the wonders of the flytrap world. The features which make this cultivar different from other red flytraps (such as Dionaea ' Red Dragon ' R.Gagliardo or Dionaea ' Red Piranha ' E.Read are the following:
A)The petioles are almost always long and thin. The other red flytraps have quite wide petioles, especially during the winter.
B)During the winter, this cultivar totally loses its leaves, at least when grown in a Mediterranean climate. The other red flytraps retain at least some of their leaves.
C)This plant is totally red, except for the teeth on immature traps, which are yellow. Dionaea ' Red Dragon ' R.Gagliardo incorporates green as part of its coloration at some time during its growth cycle.
D)The color of this cultivar is a deeper, darker red than the other currently named red flytrap cultivars. It becomes almost black in the summer if exposed to full sunlight.
E)The marginal spines on this cultivar are normal, and not sawtooth as in Dionaea ' Red Piranha ' E.Read."

The transitional part of the lamina between the leaf base and the lobes variably undulates. The trap lobes cannot completely close towards the leaf base, which usually allows prey to escape and digestive fluids to leak. The traps are slightly curved along the midrib and have narrow marginal lashes. Dionaea ' Crocodile ' M.Farina produces mostly decumbent leaves up to 7 cm long. The inner surfaces of the trap lobes develop deep red colouration while the exterior of the traps and the leaf base may suffuse reddish in plants growing in direct sunlight.

"Dionaea ' Cudo ' J. & M. Srba is minute in stature; most specimens are 1-3 cm across. The largest specimens that have been cultivated attain a diameter of 5 cm. The robust, very short, succulent, narrow leaf bases support practically no petiole but bear malformed traps that are up to 1.3 cm long and are strongly curved along the midrib. The marginal lashes are involute and stunted, and reminiscent of Dionaea ' Shark Tooth ' anon..
Dionaea ' Cudo ' J. & M. Srba was believed to be incapable of producing inflorescences, however German horticulturist Christian Klein reported to the authors of this chapter that he grew a specimen that did flower on one occasion. Unfortunately the inflorescence was not documented or photographed.
When grown in strong sunlight, the inner surfaces of the trap lobes and the leaf axils close to the rhizome may develop reddish colouration, but most often all parts are pure yellowish green. Horticulturists report that Dionaea ' Cudo ' J. & M. Srba succeeds best when cultivated in warm and humid conditions similar the prefered growing conditions of Drosera subg. Lasioecephala and lowland Nepenthes. The rhizome and new shoots develop into the substrate and have to be excavated for healthy growth to be promoted.
Propagation of Dionaea ' Cudo ' J. & M. Srba is difficult and best achieved by rhizome cuttings taken from well established specimens. As Dionaea ' Cudo ' J. & M. Srba is incapable of trapping prey, and the root system seems limited in size and function, cultivated specimens respond positively to foliar feeding with diluted liquid fertiliser."

Dionaea ' DC All Red ' S.Doonan & M.Miller produces decumbent leaves up to 7 cm long bearing traps up to 3.5 cm in length. All aspects of its morphology are in line with wild type Dionaea Soland. ex Ellis.
Similar to most red Dionaea Soland. ex Ellis variants, Dionaea ' DC All Red ' S.Doonan & M.Miller matures slowly, perhaps because the abundence of red anthocyanins in the leaves filter out some of the light spectrum used for photosynthesis. Flowers produced by Dionaea ' DC All Red ' S.Doonan & M.Miller plants may exhibit a red stigma and/or red anthers. Occasionally, flower petals may have faint red veining.

The distinctive feature of this cultivar is that it produces traps that do not respond when their trigger hairs are stimulated. In a series of tests executed at the University of Wuerzburg, it was established that the trigger hairs do generate an action potential and that all digestive functions are normal, so the error must reside in the closing mechanism of the trap lobes. The traps of Dionaea Soland. ex Ellis respond with a rapid then a slow closing movement enabling the lobes to hermetically seal before the digestive process begins. Since the traps of Dionaea ' ERROR ' M.Maier can close slowly, it appears that the defect lies in the fast closing mechanism.
The inside of the traps and the marginal lashes of Dionaea ' ERROR ' M.Maier develop pure reddish purple colouration when exposed to direct sunlight. The exterior surfaces of the trap lobes are reddish and often bear a prominent red line below the margins of the lobes. The leaf bases and petioles are pure yellowish green.

Horicultural comment: Registered 20. 10. 2011 {JS}
Standard: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.40:95 (2011)
Propagation: vegetative
Etymology: Fondue means molten in French
Description: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.40:95 (2011)
"The most spectacular feature of this new cultivar is the strange shape of the traps - they look like molten or melted plastic (see Fig. 1). During spring, the traps can look like the typical Venus flytrap, but during summer and autumn most of the later traps look molten (see Fig. 2), even petioles can appear molten (see Fig. 3). Sometimes plants do not produce typical traps in the spring, but directly produce molten traps. Because of the shape of the traps, this Venus flytrap does not catch much prey so the inside of the traps are a deep red color during most of the year."

Standard: Bailey & McPherson, Dionaea:221, Figs. 200-202 (2013)
Propagation: division
Etymology: after originator's nursery, colour and shape of marginal lashes of traps
Description: Bailey & McPherson, Dionaea:220 (2013)
"Established, mature specimens of Dionaea ' FTS Crimson Sawtooth ' M.Miller produce leaves up to 8 cm long bearing traps up 3.5 cm in length. The marginal lases are reduced to variable triangles that are up to 4 mm long. The foliage may be entirely deep crimson or maroon, or may have bands of greenish orange colouration close to the margins of the lobes. The marginal lashes are consistently bright red. The contrast between the different parts of the trap can be very striking and cause the reduced marginal lashes to resemble flames.
Dionaea ' FTS Crimson Sawtooth ' M.Miller is similar to Dionaea ' Bohemian Garnet ' M.Srba and Dionaea ' Scarlet Bristle ' R.Keehn , but differs from both of these cultivars in that it grows mostly upright throughout spring and summer months. Dionaea ' FTS Crimson Sawtooth ' M.Miller also produces larger leaves than Dionaea ' Bohemian Garnet ' M.Srba. It also bears similarity to Dionaea ' Red Piranha ' E.Read, but its upright foliage is shorter, and sturdier.
Dionaea ' FTS Crimson Sawtooth ' M.Miller is a slow growing cultivar, but exhibits greater vigour that most other red Dionaea Soland. ex Ellis variants. It produces many offshoots during each growing season and is easily propagated by division. The flowers of this cultivar sometimes exhibit red stigmas."

Propagation: division of offshoots
Etymology: after originator's nursery and appeal of traps
Description: Bailey & McPherson, Dionaea:222 (2013)
"Dionaea ' FTS Flaming Lips ' M.Miller produces leaves up to 13 cm long that bear robust traps up to 5 cm in length. The leaf bases are thick and sturdy. The shape and length of the marginal lashes alters over the growing season. They are usually simple triangular structures on leaves produced during spring (similar to Dionaea ' Dentate Traps ' B.Rice), but progressively becoming more divided with many serrations as the growing season progresses (similar to Dionaea ' Bohemian Garnet ' M.Srba).
The traps of Dionaea ' FTS Flaming Lips ' M.Miller are variably red, with yellow and orange colouration close to the margins of the lobes and across the reduced marginal lashes. The leaf bases and petioles are yellowish green, although all parts of the foliage may suffuse almost entirely red in winter, at which time the traps may turn purplish.
Dionaea ' FTS Flaming Lips ' M.Miller is extremely vigorous, and produces many offshoots during the growing season. Plantlets attain maturity far faster than most other cultivars, and division of offshoots proves the most reliable method to propagate this cultivar. Self-pollination of the flowers results in mixed offspring (approximately 20% of progeny inherit the red-leaf characteristic)."

Description: Bailey & McPherson, Dionaea:226 (2013)
"Dionaea ' FTS Maroon Monster ' M.Miller produces traps up to 5 cm long, which constitute the largest of all red Dionaea Soland. ex Ellis variants. The foliage of this cultivar is variable in colour. Usually, the leaf bases are predominently green, but hued maroon, especially towards their edges. The traps are deep marron except for a narrow margin around the edges of the lobes which is bright lime green and in striking contrast to the rest of the trap. The marginal lashes may be yellowish green, but usually turn reddish purple as they age. The leaves are up to 14 cm long, and in spring, foliage is produced that develops at an angle of 30-45deg from the surface of the substrate.
Unlike most red Dionaea Soland. ex Ellis variants, Dionaea ' FTS Maroon Monster ' M.Miller grows much faster and more vigorously than typical Dionaea Soland. ex Ellis.

"(...) it produces traps that develop intensely saturated, reddish purple colouration across their inner surfaces. This colouration sometimes extends to the outer edges of the traps as well, but usually the exterior of the traps, and the leaf bases are yellowish green. A reddish purple band of colour is often present close to the margin of the lobes, below the lashes.
According to Matt Miller, Dionaea ' FTS Purple Ambush ' M.Miller exhibits the most intense colouration of all of the thousands of distinct strains of Dionaea Soland. ex Ellis that have been cultivated at FlytrapStore. The contrast between the deeply-hued traps and the leaf bases adds to the beauty of this colourful cultivar. Dionaea ' FTS Purple Ambush ' M.Miller produce decumbent leaves throughout the growing season.

Description: Bailey & McPherson, Dionaea:230 (2013)
"The short marginal lashes of Dionaea ' FTS Shogun Star ' M.Miller are often forked, but not highly serrated, and may be variably curved towards the interior of the trap. In size, the foliage is the same as wild type Dionaea Soland. ex Ellis, but unlike typical plants and almost all cultivars, Dionaea ' FTS Shogun Star ' M.Miller produces upright leaves throughout the growing season. The traps curve backwards along the midrib but are fully functional and efficient at trapping prey.
The foliage of Dionaea ' FTS Shogun Star ' M.Miller is pure yellowish green, with faint orange or reddish colouration developing on the interior of the traps of specimens grown exposed to direct sunlight. Overwintering specimens occasionally develop darker red colouration if exposed to cold temperatures.
Dionaea ' FTS Shogun Star ' M.Miller produces offshoots in abundance. A single mature specimen may bear as many as thirty divisions during a single growing season. Young plants show excellent vigour, root easily and mature relatively quickly. All other aspects of the morphology are typical for the species."

Description: Bailey & McPherson, Dionaea:232 (2013)
"It is noteworthy for producing bright yellow foliage. While several other strains are in cultivation and are purported to produce yellow leaves, in reality all are merely green variants of Dionaea Soland. ex Ellis. Dionaea ' FTS Yellow ' M.Miller is the only cultivar that currently exists that produces foliage that is truly banana-yellow in colour. The greater the intensity of sunlight that Dionaea ' FTS Yellow ' M.Miller is exposed to, the brighter its distinctive yellow colouration becomes.
In all respects other than colouration, Dionaea ' FTS Yellow ' M.Miller is in line with typical, wild type Dionaea Soland. ex Ellis. Unfortunately, Dionaea ' FTS Yellow ' M.Miller is an extremely weak and slow growing cultivar, perhaps because of the scarcity of chlorophyll present in the leaves. It is currently being propagated in vitro by the FlytrapStore nursery as propagation by other means is slow and ineffective."

"Dionaea ' Giant Clam ' J. & M. Srba produces leaves up to 8 cm long that bear traps that are up to 4.8 cm in length. The marginal lashes are reduced to jagged, triangular projections along the margin of the trap lobes. The edge of the trap lobes variably undulates, particularly in adult plants during summer and early autumn. The traps of very young plants or mature specimens in autumn may lack this distinctive undulation.
The interior surfaces of the traps are bright red, while the lobe margins and all other parts are yellowish green. Occasionally, a red line may be present on the outer surface of the traps, below the margins of the lobes.
Dionaea ' Giant Clam ' J. & M. Srba is similar to Dionaea ' Whale ' G.Hoogenstrijd, which was discovered more recently. Compared to this cultivar, Dionaea ' Giant Clam ' J. & M. Srba is considerably larger, and the edges of the lobes may undulate to a far greater extent. This cultivar is easily propagated by the division of offshoots, rhizome cuttings and leaf cuttings."

"Once, I got my hands on a piece of this old friend, I grew it outdoors at home with my other flytraps and by the end of that summer it had grown remarkably large again! Now, after growing it for a few years, I have realized that it is possibly the biggest and best flytrap cultivar so far, producing traps that rival those of the now famous and mighty Dionaea ' B52 ' B.Rice (Figs. 2, 3, 4). It seems to be slightly more vigorous than Dionaea ' B52 ' B.Rice especially when grown outdoors. It can also be distinguished from that clone because the petioles tend to be longer and the interiors of the traps are very red, but often not quite as dark red as Dionaea ' B52 ' B.Rice. I am quite sure that it is not Dionaea ' B52 ' B.Rice, as this flytrap had been there in Albion since at least 1988, long before Dionaea ' B52 ' B.Rice was even a glimmer in Henning von Schmeling's eye."

Clearly this is an extremely vigorous clone that has a bizarre obsession with freely dividing and clumping. All you need to do is apply plenty of distilled water, then sit back and watch it multiply like a gremlin. While the plant is entirely golden green, new traps may blush a very light pink when they first open in strong light. This fades away to green as they mature, but, because of this, I doubt that it is truly anthocyanin free. It can be distinguished from Dionaea ' Justina Davis ' B.Rice by the pink blush in newly opened traps and its vigorous clumping nature."

"Dionaea ' Holland Red ' M.Erbacher & M.Stoeckl grows like the nominate form. This plant follows the already described annual cycle. The plant starts in spring with the first set of prostrate leaves with short petioles, after flower these are followed by long petiolate mid-summer leaves, to form the last set of wider short petiolate winter leaves in late summer or autumn. The leaf rosette reaches a diameter of ca. 10 cm and individual traps may attain a size of up to ca. 3 cm. The red colouration of the leaves depends, however, strongly on light conditions. Only plants exposed to full sunlight colour more or less intensely red or red-brown. In winter the plants frequently get green leaf margins or even whole plant portions that do not receive sufficient light remain dark green. As soon as the plants are exposed to more intense sunlight, the colour begins to change to typical again."

Description: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.40:140 (2001)
"Its growth behavior is like any other typical Dionaea Soland. ex Ellis (see Figs. 7 & 8). Summer's leaves are short and horizontal.
The traps don't get too much color, almost green, but under very strong light they can get a very light pink color.
Each row of teeth has, only in the middle zone of each row, a few fused teeth (see Fig. 9).
The fused teeth only appear in summer."

Propagation: rhizome cuttings
Etymology: after lash and trap shape
Description: Bailey & McPherson, Dionaea:254 (2013)
"Dionaea ' Jaws Smiley ' G.Hoogenstrijd produces distorted foliage and the entire leaf rosette can look severely twisted. The leaves consists of short, very broad leaf bases which bear elongated traps that are up to 5 cm long and curve backwards along the midrib. The margins of the trap lobes are lined with short, stout, inward-pointing marginal lashes. The orientation of the lashes prevents some traps from fully closing, although others may be fully functional.
When grown exposed to direct sunlight, the interior surfaces of the traps develop pinkish red colouration. Most other parts of the foliage are yellowish green. The marginal lashes are pale in colour and can appear white. Dionaea ' Jaws Smiley ' G.Hoogenstrijd must be propagated vegetatively. This cultivar can be easily propagated by rhizome cuttings."

Description: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.33:100 (2004)
"Growing within this batch of plants was a small individual that differed from the others by a regular fusion of only a few spines into each of its teeth. The result was that each tooth was about 2 mm wide and was flattened in cross section, in contrast with the normal capillary nature of typical Dionaea L. plants. The tips of the teeth on this peculiar plant are often are multiply divided, revealing the fused nature of the teeth. The teeth are oriented normally, unlike the distorted positioning as is often observed with Dionaea ' Fused Tooth ' P.D'Amato. (...) Another peculiarity with Dionaea ' Louchapates ' R.Anfraix is exhibited near the apex of the trap, opposite the petiole. In normal specimens of Dionaea L., this region of the leaf lobe margins lacks spines. But in Dionaea ' Louchapates ' R.Anfraix, marginal teeth are present on both lobes, all the way to the midpoint of the two lobe margins. This feature is also seen in Dionaea ' Cupped Trap ' S.Stewart, although that cultivar also has trap that is cupped like a spoon. After three years of cultivation, Dionaea ' Louchapates ' R.Anfraix has undergone normal dormancies and has been propagated vegetatively. The progeny are showing the same features as the parent plant. This cultivar is not a member of the Dionaea L. Dentate Traps Group since its teeth originate from a fusion of multiple marginal spines, and are not short and triangular."

Publication: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.36:53 (2007)
Comment: originally labelled as Dionaea ' Akai Ryu ' R.Gagliardo and possibly derived from this cultivar
Synonym: =Dionaea muscipula Soland. ex Ellis
Originator: R.Ziemer, McKinleyville, CA, USA, 1999
Nominant: R.Ziemer, 9. 2. 2006
Registrant: R.Ziemer, 16. 2. 2006
Horicultural comment: Registered 30. 7. 2007 {JS}
Standard: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.36:54 (2007)
Propagation: vegetative
Etymology: for the similarity to [Dionaea ' Akai Ryu ' {R.Gagliardo}] ('Red Dragon') and the small size of the plants
Description: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.36:53 (2007)
"Since my initial introduction to Dionaea L. cultivars, I have developed a hobby of comparing cultivars under similar growing conditions, including Dionaea ' Akai Ryu ' R.Gagliardo. It soon became apparent that the plant that I received from Peter was not the true Dionaea ' Akai Ryu ' R.Gagliardo. In fact, the plant was so different that on February 9, 2006 I decided it should be given a cultivar name, and selected the name Dionaea ' Petite Dragon ' R.Ziemer. Whereas Dionaea ' Akai Ryu ' R.Gagliardo is described in Carnivorous Plant Newsletter 25(2):50 as "far superior to any of the parents in terms of growth rate and vigor," and that "growth habit and flower morphology are typical for this species," Dionaea ' Petite Dragon ' R.Ziemer remains the smallest plant (even as a 6-year-old flowering adult) of any flytrap that I have grown in 50 years. Grown outside in full sun, a mature Dionaea ' Petite Dragon ' R.Ziemer trap is typically 15 mm long, with the largest attaining 17 mm (see Figure 1). The rosette diameter of mature plants is about 6 cm and rarely exceeds 10 cm in spring. The flower scape is about 12 cm tall and always bifurcates into two flower clusters, a large and small one (see Figure 2). The flowers have a red stigma. This is the only clone of the 61 "named" clones (i.e. plants with cultivar names, or other informal grower-given appellations) that I presently grow in which the flower scape bifurcates regularly. I have selfed this plant over several years and all of the offspring grow into small adults having bifurcated flower scapes. This plant and its seed offspring are all red like Dionaea ' Akai Ryu ' R.Gagliardo, and the stigma is red as in many other all-red Dionaea clones.
This plant will principally be of interest to those that study the genetic diversity of Dionaea muscipula. Those that seek giant specimens will perhaps conclude that Dionaea ' Petite Dragon ' R.Ziemer, to quote a well-known critic, "only merits the trash can because it is a crappy grower". However, some growers may be interested in miniature rather than giant flytraps."

Etymology: after trap colouration and vernacular generic name
Description: Bailey & McPherson, Dionaea:280 (2013)
"Dionaea ' Pink Venus ' C.Clayton is an unusual colour variant that develops foliage that suffuses pinkish red, rather than the darker shades of reddish purple observed in most other red Dionaea Soland. ex Ellis variants.
The petioles and leaf bases of Dionaea ' Pink Venus ' C.Clayton are green and variably suffused pinkish red, particularly along the edges. The traps are entirely pinkish red in plants growing in bright conditions, usually with yellow lobe margin and yellow marginal lashes when the traps are developing or for a few days after they open. If cultivated in direct sunlight, the interior surfaces of the traps may suffuse dark reddish purple, while the lashes remain pinkish red.
Many horticulturists report that Dionaea ' Pink Venus ' C.Clayton shows poor vigour and is difficult to cultivate. It produces flowers that often bear red stigmas and readily produce seed. Seed resulting from self-pollinated flowers yield mixed progeny, approximately 50% of which inherit the pinkish red leaf colouration."

The traps are long and narrow, and have a rectanular aspect, and despite their fused ends, they are capable of closing and digesting prey. They are up to 3.4 cm long, and are borne on narrow leaf bases that are up to 1.9 cm long and 8 mm wide. In some leaves, the petiole is elongated and may measure 5 mm in length. When exposed to direct sunlight, the interior surfaces of the traps suffuse bright red. Sometimes the lower parts of the trap lobes and the midrib remain yellowish green. A narrow red line is often present on the exterior below the margins of the trap lobes. The leaf bases are consistently yellowish green. This cultivar can be easily propagated by rhizome cuttings."

Propagation: vegetative by rhizome cutting or leaf pulling
Etymology: after colouration of plant and the song by Jimi Hendrix
Description: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.44:33 (2015)
"Dionaea ' Purple Haze ' J.M.Kotleba (Fig. 3 and Front Cover) is a unique cultivar I developed by transferring the pollen from the anthers of a Dionaea ' Low Giant ' C.Clayton to the stamens of a Dionaea ' Akai Ryu ' R.Gagliardo on 4 May 2005, resulting in the production of 37 seeds that were immediately harvested and planted on 23 June 2005. A total of 29 seeds germinated and were allowed to grow for five months. During that time, I observed one unique seedling exhibit traits that were different from the other seedlings, specifically, darkest color and largest trap size. I named this young Dionaea ' Purple Haze ' J.M.Kotleba.
Dionaea ' Purple Haze ' J.M.Kotleba grows leaves horizontally and low to the ground throughout the growing season. A mature plant has never displayed a leaf base longer than the length of its trap. More specifically, this plant maintains a unique leaf base to trap length ratio of approximately 1:1 in the first three years of growth, followed by a ratio of 0.7:1 as the plant matures. A fully mature six-year-old plant will develop stout robust marginal lashes with a leaf base never exceeding 2.75 cm long and a trap size length range of 3-4 cm.
The entire plant of Dionaea ' Purple Haze ' J.M.Kotleba exhibits a deep purplish red color (RHS 71A) when grown in 8 hours or more of direct sunlight. This also includes the flower stalk and sepals. A very limited amount of a green/yellow coloration band is present on the trap?s outer edge only during the early stages of trap development and again as the plant prepares to enter winter dormancy. Otherwise, Dionaea ' Purple Haze ' J.M.Kotleba maintains a uniform deep purple color throughout the entire growing period. Figure 3 (right) shows plants from leaf pullings in their third season of growth.
There are a number of red Dionaea Soland. ex Ellis cultivars listed in Bailey and McPherson (2013), but Dionaea ' Purple Haze ' J.M.Kotleba has the following unique characteristics, some of which are missing in the other red cultivars:
1) Color ? Deep Purple Red (RHS 71A) covers entire plant throughout the growing season.
2) Growth pattern ? Always grows leaves horizontally and low to the ground, never erect.
3) Leaf base length ? Never exceeds 2.75 cm even on fully mature plants.
4) Trap length ? Averages 3 to 4 cm on mature plant.
5) Leaf base length to trap length ratio ? Leaf base length never exceeds its trap length.
6) Trap marginal lashes ? Normal length but more robust and a little thicker at base of lash.
The differences are as follows:
? Dionaea ' Bohemian Garnet ' M.Srba comes close to Dionaea ' Purple Haze ' J.M.Kotleba in #1 (Color) and passes #2 (Growth pat- tern), but fails #6 (Marginal lashes) due to sawtooth.
? Dionaea ' DC All Red ' S.Doonan & M.Miller fails #3 (Leaf base length) and also #5 (Leaf base length to trap length ratio). Also maximum leaf size is stated to be 12.5 cm with traps 3 to 3.5 cm which also supports the failure of #3 and #5.
? Dionaea ' Petite Dragon ' R.Ziemer fails #4 (trap length) as implied by the name, 'Petite'.
? Dionaea ' Red Burgundy ' M.Erbacher & M.Stoeckl fails #2 due to erect summer leaves and fails #3 and #5 with leaf bases that
can reach up to 10 cm in length.
? Dionaea ' Red Pluto ' M.Maier fails #1 since the color is listed as reddish brown and also fails #3 and #5 since
leaf base can reach a length of 5 cm along with a trap length of 3.2 cm. Traps also develop a mutative form where the distal ends are partly fused."

Description: Taublatt 51:22 (2005) (in German)
"The intensely dark red colouration has baptized Dionaea ' Red Burgundy ' M.Erbacher & M.Stoeckl. The comparatively strong and rapid (for a red cultivar) growth, the trapping leaves up to 5 cm large, and the up to 15 cm long petioles of the summer rosette are typical characteristics. The unusual dark red colour intensity makes this cultivar so exceptional. Even under normal light conditions the plant attains full colouration, which reaches an optimum with increasing sunlight and temperatures. At the end of summer and under corresponding growth conditions the plant colours particularly strongly dark red (burgundy). The winter leaves appearing in autumn are short petioled and wider. Smaller traps are formed and the red colouration retreats due to enhanced chlorophyll production."

Description: Bailey & McPherson, Dionaea:173 (2013)
"(...) it is a pure red Dionaea Soland. ex Ellis variant with leaf bases that are fused directly to the lobes of the traps, omitting the petiole entirely. This is the same characteristic that distinguishes the (...) cultivar Dionaea ' Korrigans ' G.Bily, however Dionaea ' Red Fused Petiole ' K.Pasek differs from that plant in overall colouration. The foliage of this cultivar is in line with wild type Dionaea Soland. ex Ellis, in all other respects, including size.
The foliage of Dionaea ' Red Fused Petiole ' K.Pasek is uniformly deep red to burgundy in colour, except for young leaves which may be yellowish green whilst developing and for a few days after the traps open.
The lobes of the trap close upon prey when stimulated, however, due to their fused bases, they rarely achieve a tight seal. Digestive fluid often leaks from the proximal ends of closed traps, and perhaps because of this, trapped prey often rots.
Dionaea ' Red Fused Petiole ' K.Pasek is slow growing and unvigorous, perhaps because it is inefficient at catching prey or because the prominent red anthocyanins of its foliage reduce the efficiency by which it can photosynthesize. It is best propagated by rhizome cuttings and division of offshoots. Plantlets may take up to three years to attain maturity."

Do not exhibit any physical differences to other Dionaea muscipula Soland. ex Ellis. Green margins and red inner surfaces of the trap are characteristics common to both Dionaea ' Royal Red ' AUPBR 464 and the normal form of Dionaea muscipula Soland. ex Ellis, and it is the colour of the other plant parts which make Dionaea ' Royal Red ' AUPBR 464 distibctive.

Propagation: vegetative only
Etymology: the marginal trap tentacles are small and fimbriately notched
Description: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.29:16 (2000)
"This Dionaea muscipula Soland. ex Ellis is of uncertain origin, but has been distributed without an established name. As such, the commonly used name Dionaea ' Sawtooth ' B.Rice is being registered. Dionaea ' Sawtooth ' B.Rice is a remarkable plant in the Dionaea Dentate Traps Group B.Rice. Its marginal trap spines are reduced to small triangular teeth, as in Dionaea ' Dentate Traps ' B.Rice. Unlike that latter cultivar, however, the teeth of Dionaea ' Sawtooth ' B.Rice are frequently minutely divided into two or more tiny teethlets, so the trap has an almost fringed appearance. Late in the season, the interior of the traps may be deeply red, although this is not visible in young traps."

Propagation: vegetative only
Etymology: after colouration of trigger hairs
Description: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.39:37 (2010)
"Dionaea ' Scarlet Bristle ' R.Keehn is distinct in its attributes as the leaf blades and traps exhibit scarlet to burgundy coloration in filtered sunlight and are held prone to the surface of the growing medium in all seasons of growth. The marginal trap cilia are greatly reduced, irregular and devoid of fine hairlike tips which imparts a rough bristly appearance to the trap lobe margins. This is clearly different in structure from Dionaea ' Red Piranha ' E.Read as the triangular shaped marginal cilia are commonly uniform and evenly spaced on Dionaea ' Red Piranha ' E.Read. Another interesting characteristic of Dionaea ' Scarlet Bristle ' R.Keehn is that mature trap trichomes (trigger hairs) continue to develop a thick bristly growth on their upper portion as the traps age. Although absent in young plants this unique attribute is very apparent in older plants, is readily visible to the naked eye and can resemble anything from a spear-head shape to the bristle end of a bottle brush. This extra growth on the trichomes appears to neither impede nor enhance trap function but does make itself worthy of continued study. Unlike Dionaea ' Bohemian Garnet ' M.Srba Dionaea ' Scarlet Bristle ' R.Keehn grows equal in size to the regular form of Dionaea muscipula Soland. ex Ellis and does not produce copious numbers of offshoots after the plants have grown out of their TC vigor."

"Dionaea ' Sirius ' C.Boiteux differs from Dionaea ' Blanche Hermine ' G.Bily in a number of important ways. Dionaea ' Blanche Hermine ' G.Bily is all white and because of a deficiency of chlorophyll is a slow grower. In contrast, the early spring traps of Dionaea ' Sirius ' C.Boiteux start with a red/ pink color (Fig. 1). As the season progresses, the color of new traps fade gradually, becoming white during summer. Only the traps become white. The petioles stay green, which permits the plant to remain vigorous from photosynthesis."

"This plant was originally selected in September 2011 because its appearance was identical to Dionaea ' Cupped Trap ' S.Stewart, but with dark red traps. In the second year, the plant lost its "Dionaea ' Cupped Trap ' S.Stewart appearance" and began to develop dentate-like teeth, but the trap was clearly not typical. When the plant finally reached a mature size and flowered for the first time, its strange teeth remained very different throughout the year. The teeth range from long with alternating short and thin teeth, to short and triangular teeth like a mixture of sawtooth and dentate. Due to the convexity of the traps, they close very fast. Summer leaves can be 20 cm long."

"Dionaea ' Spotty ' S.Lenssen produces decumbent and erect foliage throughout the growing season. The leaves consist of slightly succulent narrow leaf bases that bear traps that are up to 3.2 cm long. The marginal lashes emerge from broad bases, and resemble acute triangles. The colouration of the foliage is extremely variable. All parts are yellowish green suffused with red, except for the midrib and interior of the trap lobes, which are pure reddish purple. All parts of the leaves, except the interior surfaces of the trap lobes are lined with varable spots and blotches or red or purple. This colouration is particularly apparent on the exterior surfaces of the trap lobes which contrast with the pure red inner trap surfaces.
This cultivar remains very rare in cultivation, mainly because it can only be propagated by rhizome cuttings. Leaf cuttings and seed consistently fail to yield plants that inherit the distinctive "spotty" colouration. Unfortunately, this trait is also not permanent. Stefan reported that his original specimen recently lost its spotty colouration."

Description: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.42:151 (2013)
"Dionaea ' St. Patrick's Beard ' D.Conner is a tissue culture sport from a Dionaea ' Cheerleader ' D.Conner. During spring 2011, a large Dionaea ' Cheerleader ' D.Conner with traps that ranged from fuzzy to normal looking traps (Fig. 7) produced a flower stalk with normal looking flowers (Fig. 9) which was placed into tissue culture. The resulting jars of subcultured plantlets were largely neglected until early 2012, when many of the plantlets had died. The remaining live plantlets were finally deflasked and transplanted. Many of the intermediate transitioning traps had remnants of the fuzz, in the form of raised striations on the outer lobes, oriented vertically from the trap midrib to the outer margin, and a massed clump of spike-like protrusions near the base of the trap, giving the appearance of a "beard". The traps on one of these plants had an appearance somewhat resembling a strange combination of Dionaea ' Cupped Trap ' S.Stewart and Dionaea ' Wacky Traps ' B.Rice. This is the cultivar Dionaea ' St. Patrick's Beard ' D.Conner (Fig. 8). The flower petals are narrower than those of "normal" Dionaea muscipula Soland. ex Ellis (Fig. 9), but wider than those of Dionaea ' Wacky Traps ' B.Rice (Fig. 10).

Description: Bailey & McPherson, Dionaea:318 (2013)
"Dionaea ' Trichterfalle ' E.Koenig produces two types of leaves. In spring, late summer and autumn it mainly produces foliage that bears funnel shaped traps, that are up to 2.6 cm long and borne on erect foliage consisting of very elongated and narrow leaf bases that are up to 9 cm in length. The traps of these leaves are entirely fused at the proximal end of their lobes which results in their distinctive shape. The traps are positioned upright on elongated stalk-like petioles that are up to 1.8 cm long from the top of the leaf base.
During early summer, Dionaea ' Trichterfalle ' E.Koenig reverts to producing decumbent leaves that bear fully-formed traps that are up to 3.6 cm in length, although usually with abnormally long marginal lashes that are up to 1.4 cm long. The leaf bases of both the decumbent and erect leaves may bear variable ridges and wrinkles reminiscent of the scales-like structures of Dionaea ' Schuppenstiel I ' E.Koenig.
When exposed to direct sunlight, the traps of Dionaea ' Trichterfalle ' E.Koenig develop dark red interior surfaces and marginal lashes. A red line is present on the exterior of the traps, below the margins of the lobes. All other parts of the foliage are yellowish green. This cultivar can best be propagated through leaf and rhizome cuttings. Self-pollinated flowers yield seed, although only a minority of seedlings inherit the distinctive morphology."

Description: Bailey & McPherson, Dionaea:320 (2013)
"Dionaea ' Triton ' M.Maier is a vigorous cultivar that produces decumbent leaves that are up to 7 cm long, which bear traps that are up to 3.9 cm in length. The trap lobes are broad but have fully fused distal ends, which creates an broad, oval trap shape. The marginal lashes fringe the entire perimeter of the traps, and often several lashes are fused together to form clumps with obtuse tips. Each trap lobe can bear up to six trigger hairs. The foliage of Dionaea ' Triton ' M.Maier is entirely yellowish green, except for the inner surfaces of the traps, which may suffuse faint reddish if exposed to direct sunlight. This cultivar is easily propagated by division of offshoots and rhizome cuttings."

Standard: Bailey & McPherson, Dionaea:324 & 325, Figs. 350-352 (2013)
Propagation: division of offshoots and rhizome cuttings
Etymology: German for "reversed" after revolute trap lobes
Description: Bailey & McPherson, Dionaea:324 (2013)
"Dionaea ' Umgekrempelt ' M.Maier displays extremely variable trap morphology. It mostly produces decumbent leaves in spring and autumn, and upright leaves in summer. The leaf bases are narrow and less than 5 cm long, while the traps are up to 2.8 cm in length. The lobes are variably recurved towards the margins, and in some cases, they are completely backwards-curled. The marginal lashes are mostly involute but can also be revolute in a minority of leaves. For a few weeks in spring, several leaves with relatively minor malformation may be produced and these may closely resemble wild type Dionaea Soland. ex Ellis foliage.
Although young specimens Dionaea ' Umgekrempelt ' M.Maier often have functional traps, those of mature plants are usually unable to fully close and capture trap prey. If exposed to direct sunlight, the interior surfaces of the traps suffuse bright red and the marginal lashes become pinkish. Dionaea ' Umgekrempelt ' M.Maier is a very slow growing cultivar, and requires several years to attain maturity. It is best propagated by division of offshoots and rhizome cuttings."

Description: Growing Carniv.Pl.:81 (2006)
"This new cultivar name is for a plant that was originally noticed by Mike Ross during a trip to Cresco Nursery in The Netherlands in 1996. The trap tissue never completely develops, so the leaf lobes have a jagged, incomplete structure. This plant never performs well and is often disliked by some growers, while others delight in its strangeness."
