DIONAEA MUSCIPULA giant red

by asiklov » Sun Jun 27, 2010 1:11 pm

Guys,

I've found this on ebay:
http://cgi.benl.ebay.be/Graines-de-DIONAEA-MUSCIPULA-giant-red-/120585211737?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_23&hash=item1c13704f59
The add is in French, he's selling 15 seeds from that cultivar for 1.99 €
but I can't find giant red anywhere in a cultivar list, didn't even turn up in the search listings of the forum.
can I trust this?

NO. Seeds are not onsidered the same cultivar as their parents even if giant red was a registered one. Te only way to get a cultivar is from a leaf pulling or a tissue culture clone from the atual original clone itself.

They will be considered typical, but they very well may have the traits of the giant red form parent and you can grt very lucky!!! If not you have some typicals but who knows you may get a new blend that you can raise and name :mrgreen:
