Best Place to Buy Legitimate G16 Seeds?

by tjmleech » Sat Dec 26, 2015 8:47 pm

I've been looking around online for some decent G16 VFT seeds to purchase, and I've become increasingly cautious since I've heard there's a lesser European variation of certain VFTs, such as the Low Giant, and the G16.

In regards to the G16, do any of you have any experience with either of of the following sites? Do these photographs resemble the G16 sold by Flytrapstore?

Thanks so much for your time and help! I'm a new hobbyist and am excited to join all of you as a part of this community.

As far as I'm aware specific cultivars can only be obtained as clones. Starting seeds from "cultivar x" will NOT produce identical plants there for will not be "cultivar x". Thus true cultivars cannot be obtained via seed at all.

Seeds from cultivars do not usually create the same cultivar they just make normal vfts

Seeds from cultivars do not ever make the same cultivar. Never. They will always be genetically unique.
