I would say


B52

Bristletooth

Jaws, if your looking for size, color and growth habitat, then jaws beats shogun star in my opinion.




Hope this helps!

If you like the growth habit, size and color of Maroon Monster, I'd say that FTS Etna or B52 are your best two choices of those four. FTS Etna is probably most similar in terms of growth habit. B52 probably colors up a bit better and has slightly larger traps though.

They're very similar plants. I think I like Sawtooth slightly better, but they're so similar that it's a hard call. Bristletooth does have the odd trigger hairs, which is cool.

Jaws is definitely my favorite of those three. It's one of my favorite flytraps period. It gets amazing color, good size traps and has a nice growth habit. My wife really likes Shark's Teeth though because of its mostly upright growth. She say's it "looks happy" all the time :) And FTS Shogun Star is quite a bit different than either of those clones. It is closer to a Sawtooth than a Dentate-like plant like Shark's Teeth and Jaws.

It's all just a matter of personal opinion and preference. Just from my point of view--

I prefer Jaws to Shark's Teeth, and I can't see much difference between Sawtooth and Bristletooth, just like I can't see much difference between Fused Tooth and Fuzzy Tooth.

FTS Etna has impressed both Matt and myself, but we still don't know how it will stand up in the long run. I like it so far.

FTS Shogun Star is like a bigger-trapped Dentate traps with sawtooth edging. It's a nice and unusual clone.

FTS Maroon Monster is still a favorite of mine, with more vigorous growth and larger traps than other red-leaved Venus Flytrap clones.

Those are just personal notes and comments.

I really like Vigorous for growth. It grows like a weed sending up new traps all over the place. B52 I like for the neater growth, color and size of traps. Don't own an Etna so cant comment on that plant.
