1.) Does "Mirror" pass down its bizarre traits to its children? Or can Mirror only be cloned to keep its traits?
I have some 'Mirror' x 'Mirror' seedlings and some of them do have the bizarre flanges and double traps. So yes, 'Mirror' can pass down its traits to its sexually propagated offspring. But not all 'Mirror' x 'Mirror' seedlings will have the trait and the trait may not be as pronounced as it is in the original 'Mirror' cultivar.
2.) Does "Long Red Fingers" have seasonal fusing of cilia that is more significant than other seasons? Similar to "Fused Tooth"?
Yes. In the spring the teeth are less fused, just like 'Fused Tooth'. It seems like all flytraps that exhibit fusing in the marginal spines show it less intensely in the spring than in the fall.
3.) Does anyone know the parentage to "Triton"? Could it just be a "Cupped Trap x Fused Tooth"?
I doubt it. 'Cupped Trap' doesn't produce much seed. My guess is that "Triton" is related to 'Louchapates'.
4.) When does the B52 create those upright traps on petioles that sort of look like a square on the end with the trap?
I'm not sure exactly what you're describing.
5.) Does "Louchpates" count as a fused distal end flytrap?
And one thing to note: When talking about an officially registered cultivar, single quotes should be used around the cultivar name (i.e. 'Mirror', 'Louchapates', 'Fused Tooth'). When talking about non-registered cultivars (i.e. "Long Red Fingers"), double quotes are used around the cultivar name.
