For those of you who haven't seen photos of this newly registered cultivar, below are a few I took recently. This is a very odd looking flytrap and not like any other clone I've ever seen. The petioles are long and thin like spaghetti noodles and the traps are poorly formed, almost like Wacky Traps. It's a really unique and interesting Venus fly trap clone and I'm really liking it so far.

Yeah, many of the traps have more than 3 trigger hairs.

Most of them come in trades. For Korean Melody Shark, I was able to work out a trade directly with the person that registered it as an official cultivar.

I've had my plants since October.

I have it in TC right now. In fact, I already have a few of them potted out and nearly ready for sale. Steve and I will be selling our first one on eBay starting on Monday.

And yeah, it does look like it would be hard to take pullings from. The rhizome on them is pretty small because the petioles are so thin.

I've been wondering lately how many clones will be registered eventually. It seems like there have been quite a few registered recently after not having too many for quite a few years.

How strange! It looks beautiful in its own noodly way and I'd certainly be proud to own one! Best of luck continuing its wonderful growth and I'll certainly be jealous of the lucky ones who score one of these on eBay.

Often times, they'll contact me. But if there is something in particular that I'm looking for, I'll find out who is growing it and send them an email or message.

You can find out everything about it here:
http://www.flytrapcare.com/venus-fly-tr ... -trap.html

Quote from that page:
Etymology: This cultivar was named "Korean" because it came from Korea, where this new carnivorous plant cultivar was named, "Melody" because the traps look like musical notes, and "Shark" as an allusion to the informal name of the parent plants.
