Dionaea 'Jaws' vs. "Shark's Teeth"?

by Veronis » Wed Aug 22, 2012 10:26 pm

Hey all,

I've never grown either of these two cultivars, and via pictures I've never really noticed a major difference between the two.

Can anyone tell me what traits make them different from one another? E.g.

Growth habit
Coloration
Teeth shape
Vigor/size

Jaws is superior in all categories in my opinion. It's larger, more vigorous, a better seeder and has more menacing looking teeth. In terms of growth habit, they're very similar.

I used to have a Jaws, and it was great ('till I forgot to water :roll: )

Personally, I find my Shark's Teeth to be weak, underwhelming plants. Probably one of the most disapointing plants in my collection. Whilst I've never had a Jaws plant, I'd still recommend it over Shark's Teeth.
