Now your original post makes sense. Which cultivars are you asking about? Or do you just want to know the names of the smaller ones?

Well, maybe just on average the big cultivars, and then how small the small ones get, cause i got 2 mystery ones from VFT store, and one has already grown big traps, while the other has some small ones

As for the trap size in a typical, that depends on the plant's growing conditions and its genetics. Some plants just have small traps, like some people just have small hands. It could be that the small plant just needs more time to grow (young plants usually have small traps). Can you post pictures of them?

My All Green cultivar always has smaller traps than "average" flytraps. The Cup Trap cultivar has small traps, too. And I've seen some dwarf varieties of flytraps.

The one on the right looks like a younger plant.
