If you were stranded on a desert island and how to pick one cultivar (and could grow it perfectly), which would you pick?

Current results:
  • 3 B-52
  • 2 FTS Maroon Monster
  • 1 Wine Mouth
  • 1 Big Mouth
  • 1 King Henry (not an official cultivar?)
  • 1 DC XL
  • 1 A2
  • 1 Paradisia
  • 1 SD Kronos
  • 1 FTS Crimson Sawtooth
  • 1 G16
I was hoping to include a list of cultivars but it's too long so instead, here's a link to the current authority on the matter ... carnivorous plant database and ICPS Carnivorous Plant Names Database. Feel free to write in your favorites as well.

I'll start off the conversation by saying that 'B-52' is my all time favorite.

A2 seems to produce the biggest traps for me, bigger than my B52 so far anyway, of which A2 is one parent, so I'd have to choose that

Another vote for B-52. Easy. Big. Breathtaking.

Paradisia. Doesn't take a lot of room, great color!

My favorite VFT is B52, but that cultivar is so easy my dog could grow it. If I'm stranded on a desert island, might as well go for something challenging, right? So, hmm, I would pick one of those crazy blue psychedelic flytraps that I always see on ebay.

I'm going to count this one as Big Mouth. Please let me know if I'm wrong!
