If someone can sell me the following seeds please.

Maroon Monster, Grimson Sawtooth and Claytons Volcanic red. 5 or 10 seeds of each will do

I live in South Africa

Thank you

That is impossible. Those cultivars can only be propagated vegetatively - any seeds, even selfed seeds from one of the plants will have different genetics and are extremely unlikely to retain the same appearance as the parent. Not that this stops people from selling seeds labeled as cultivars.

It's actually very rare for cultivars to be reproducible from seed, and isn't guaranteed. I'm only aware of one Sarracenia and one Drosera where this is possible.

Seeds from a particular clone might look like the parent plant. But there is also a very good chance they will look nothing like their parents.

Bottom line is that you cannot guarantee the visual appearance of any flytrap unless it is a genetically identical clone of another plant. Plants that are sexually propagated (seeds) express a wide variety of traits.

it's hit or miss. I have some Red Line x Maroon Monster cross seeds, and the majority of the seedlings are coming out looking more like Maroon Monster lol...
